Art Show and Fundraiser Benefitting “Artefacting”: Oct 7th & 8th - Lobby Bar @ Will Rogers Theatre, OKC
We are in the middle of a three month art project & immersion in the informal community of Dharavi - also known as Asia’s Largest Slum. Dharavi is right in the heart of Mumbai and is actually a beehive of industry and community.
Our initial project involved coming here to learn about the community in Dharavi through art - by making our own art as well as hosting art classes to people here. Our goal is to go beyond the imagery of a slum and embrace the humanity and identity of the people in this community.
