Art Literacy
NSPA hope to contribute towards a larger Art consciousness in society, fostering a greater societal ownership and educated appreciation of our Arts heritage and diversity and the larger Artist community. In line with this idea is NSPA’s Art Literacy Mission. The program currently consists of three primary interventions with its scope limited to children up to the age of 16 years across public and private schools and city neighbourhoods. The basic methodology comprises the use of interactive and experiential techniques to impart Art education complementary with the prevalent school curriculum.

The interventions range from distribution of simple, portable and economical instruments sourced from local artisans to students already undergoing some sort of musical training, interactive performances by independent Artists to more in-depth workshops where Artists initiate their audiences to the context and contours of their Art form and practice. Each artist through his/her experience of teaching young children engages them in a conversation through which diverse Art forms are taught, performed and an appreciation of Art gradually created and nurtured.

I reached Vashi station tired and worn out from the days work, to see a crowd formed around a man, went to investigate, and I saw a man performing a song which sounded like Sufi music to me. His voice echoed through the granite corridors of the station and the merry strums of his guitar filled the air with melancholy. I stood there hearing his song about finding God in ones own belief, reminded me of Kabir ke Dohe which i had read when i was a kid.
- Satish Kumar

Awesome job!! Best of luck for your initiative
