Snehadhara Foundation is a registered non-profit organization based in Bangalore that works with children and adults who are differently-abled, their caregivers and families.
We began by integrating creative processes of learning with small groups of children in schools, with special children in inclusive environments and moved on to setting up a centre – Snehadhara for Arts Based Therapy using multi-arts media, in 2012.
The pioneers of Arts Practices for Inclusion, Snehadhara Foundation believes that inclusion is the bedrock of a more compassionate and empathetic society. SF advocates inclusionary spaces where arts practices form the primary methodology of teaching and learning. SF aims to create an environment which welcomes, acknowledges, affirms and celebrates the value of all learners.
We have crafted three initiatives in pursuit of this goal: Direct Care, impART and Prajnadhara.
The ambit of Snehadhara’s mission encompasses working with children across disabilities and across age groups using the Arts (Direct Care); co-creation of empathetic learning spaces in schools, colleges, corporates and the community (impART) and create inclusive spaces that celebrate neurodiversity by certifying students in Arts Practices for Inclusion ( Prajnadhara)
