Look At Us

Updated: 3 days ago


DATE: Jan 2016

PARTNERS: Look at Us crew led by Priya Gulati & Jaaga.

COMMUNITY: Children at the community center. 

Jaaga spearheaded a participatory community art project with close to 50 deserving children between the age of 8 and 16, repainting their community centre. The children created personal silhouettes of their dreams and aspirations, which they painted in with primary colours.

The Look At Us campaign focuses on nurturing self-value and pushing confidence in adolescents who are living in urban slums around the world. Look At Us used creative mediums like music, dance, and painting to engage children to talk about their lives. Jaaga DNA teamed up with the Look At Us folks to help run a participatory mural painting workshop for a group of children that they had identified. The painting activity scheduled to happen in the children’s community hall filled every child with excitement. Children were asked about their favorite characters from real and real life, their dreams, aspirations, and the things they love to start the activity. Once they expressed their thoughts with different postures, it was shadowed on the walls, sketched, and painted with all the children of the community. The entire activity turned out to be a fun-filled and memorable start to the year 2016 for all.
