The intent of our workshops is to help provide an experience of and explore a realm of learning possibilities using the Arts and how these can be used in working with children. It is also to challenge belief systems, push boundaries and create a symbiotic learning relationship within and with the world around. For this we introduce a vocabulary of creative arts-based techniques.
Some Workshops we have conducted
Sri Aurobindo School Of Integral Education, Chandigarh 2018
Sri Aurobindo School Of Integral Education, Chandigarh is an English-medium Co-educational school in Chandigarh that strives to provide integral and holistic education by incorporating modern tools of teaching with traditional methods of learning. We got an opportunity to introduce our program ‘Mandala- Dialogue Circles through the Arts’ to a lively group of teachers.
Life Foundation-Charar-i-sharief, Kashmir 2018
Life Foundation is a private School in Charar i Sharief, Kashmir. We got the opportunity to address the passing out Tenth Grade Batch. Gitanjali Sarangan got the group to see the power of learning using the Arts with the 10th graders repeating a Tamil song. Our message to the group was to be that warrior who fights with gentleness and fearlessness outside and within. We also got to do a session with the little ones at the school.
Amrit Somani Memorial Centre, Kolkatta, 2018
Amrit Somani Memorial Center (ASMC) is a private, nonprofit intervention center in Kolkata for children with Developmental Delays. At ASMC we applied the principles of the science of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to teach autistic children in the center, home, school and community. What was interesting in this engagement was to see two absolutely different schools of thought coming together with the objective to re-imagine what it means to look at ways of creating empathetic therapeutic spaces for children with ASD. We challenged belief systems, we broke myths, we agreed to disagree and we celebrated differences. There are times in our lives where it is hard to say who is the facilitator and who is the student. One such experience where the right view precedes the method. This session in ASMC was truly in the spirit of inclusion- as we defined it to the gift of presence.
