Domestic Abuse Mural Workshop

Updated: May 24

DATE: Feb 2016

PARTNERS:  Shreya Chari - Student, CIS. & Jaaga.

COMMUNITY: Public, Canadian International School.


Jaaga facilitated a group of students working on a school project on domestic abuse. Shreya, a 9th grader was keen to bring their project learning into public space through social messaging. We supported her engagement with public space from concept development to on-site execution.

The group painted a mural on one of the pillars of KH Double Road at Richmond Circle. The artwork depicts two hands rising from the ground to hold strong the ribbon colored purple symbolically emphasizing the issue of domestic abuse.

A group of 4 girls from Canadian International School chose Domestic Abuse as a research topic for one of their project works. The team conducted research, filmed, documented, and designed a public awareness campaign to reach out to the larger audience. Shreya, the team point of the project chose art as a creative medium of expression to share her team’s findings. She decided to take this project to a public space to spread awareness and approached Jaaga DNA to work with her. We loved her enthusiasm and commitment and supported the group in conceptualizing their artwork for public space. The group painted a mural on one of the pillars of KH Double Road at Richmond Circle. The artwork depicts two hands rising from the ground holding strong a purple ribbon symbolically pointing to the issue of domestic abuse.
