A New Conversation: Art and Health

SNEHA has begun a series of activities that foster dialogue between segregated communities: slum dwellers, professional artists and health scientists. The activities involve collaborations between established artists and emerging artists from Mumbai’s majority communities.

We would like to work towards a high-profile public engagement event using art as a medium to stimulate wider discussion on urban health, to give collaborators exposure and experience of professional practice, and to cement the initiative.

 

Our idea is to capitalize on the various art, cultural and science conferences in Mumbai by mounting a complementary exhibition of creative works on the health of people who live in India’s slums.

We hope that the event will be the first in a series.
