We spent some time foraging leaves and branches and created personality portraits with them. This art was created by Barish. The three identical leaves that she collected remind her of her best friends - Bebo and Niru.

This session was conducted with Kutumb Village - an NGO that provides quality life and education to abandoned children.

A collection of vignettes about spaces where we find safety, friendship and adventure. These stories have been narrated by adults and children from different ages.


We love how each space is either a personification of the narrator's self or is contributing to shaping it. 

This session was conducted with Anushree Joshi (a sketch note artist) and the learners at Kenzen School.
