… Fascinated Americans wanting to document a slice of Dharavi. Sounds like an average day in the life of the slum in the post-Slumdog Millionaire era.

On a mission called Artefacting Mumbai, the two have collaborated with several agencies here and back home in New York and Oregon to create a multimedia art exhibition. And more importantly, as they told us over cold coffee at a SoBo café last evening, they’re here to take lessons from the community and return as changed men.
