#CelebratingHeritage 

Through Street Art 

In collaboration with

Can art bring about more changes to a place than just aesthetics ? 

Yes, we all do believe that, but can Art influence the way people interact with their city ?

Let's give it a try. Read on to know more.

About the Initiative

"Dillī ke na the kūche aurāq-e-musavvar the

jo shakl nazar aa.ī tasvīr nazar aa.ī   

 

[ Delhi’s streets were not alleys, but artist's canvas,  every sight that appeared seemed like a painting ]

- Mir Taqi Mir                     

 

Lanes of Old Delhi, are probably one of the richest source of Heritage in the city. These provide an identity to itself, yet under the pressure of contemporary world, this is quickly losing its charm due to rapid economic transformations and unclean surroundings. 

With this initiative we are attempting to revive the rich artistic legacy of the area. With the help of contemporary elements, we aspire to bring attention back to the diminishing cultural heritage. 

We are collaborating with Marham, an NGO based in Old Delhi, who are actively engaged in cleanliness drives (Safai Aadha Imaan Movement) in the area. 

Marham : Safai Aadha Imaan Movement

A movement aimed at waste management, is transforming the lanes of Old Delhi. By engaging homeless citizens adopted by the NGO, local residents and authorities, Marham is bringing innovative ideas by public participation. Started in the Katra Gokul Shah, the movement transformed the streets from being filled with garbage heaps to a lane with a proper waste disposal system, vertical gardens, and colorful inspiring messages.
