Giving children a childhood

Delhi Council for Child Welfare (DCCW) is an established NGO working for the welfare of under-privileged children in and around Delhi, since 1952. Over the last six decades DCCW has impacted the lives of over 3,00,000 under-privileged children through its programmes and services – providing a home for lost / abandoned children, medical care, nutrition, rehabilitation of special needs children, vocational training and facilitating education. Typically over 3000 underprivileged children are served daily through 16 Centres. This has been made possible by partnering with individuals and institutions who believe they can bring about a change in the lives of these children, helping them achieve their potential and go on to lead productive lives.PALNA, the home and adoption centre for lost and abandoned children has been operational for over four decades in the Civil Lines area of Delhi. There are over 3000 children and young adults across the world whose first real home was PALNA. | Tel: 011-23968907 | email: | Instagram: @palna_dccw

Dear Patrons,
We are in the midst of the prevailing Covid pandemic where children have begun to be impacted greatly. Over 500 children have been orphaned in India due to the second wave of Covid. Even as India grapples with crumbling health systems experts are already calling for preparations for the third wave, which they predict will strike the country later this year. Warnings of a severe impact on children don’t augur well for orphanages who face unprecendented challenges with having to care for vulnerable lost and abandoned children.

For the last thirty years I have personally observed the dedication of Delhi Council for Child Welfare (DCCW) that manages PALNA, a home and adoption centre for lost and abandoned children, located at Yamuna Road Civil Lines Delhi. DCCW is an exemplary NGO with a committed leadership spanning over six decades. Since they receive no funding from the government all programs are dependent on donations from organisations and individuals. Recently their programs have been severely impacted by the pandemic, both in terms of financial and practical constraints with reductions in corporate donations. In order to ensure the safety of the children, administrators and caregivers here have been working overtime, and often at risk to their own health. Rations usually forthcoming have been irregular due to lockdowns. With delays in adoption, the children are staying in much longer. New arrivals and sick children need to be isolated with dedicated caregivers. Expenses have surmounted with the need for medication, oxygen concentrators, oximetres, and other essential supplies to meet the current requirement and to prepare for the possible third wave that is predicted to impact children more than now.  

Artspeaks India Outreach Program takes the initiative, to organise the Covid Relief Art Fundraiser 2021 to support Delhi Council of Child Welfare (DCCW) through the sale of art. Part of the proceeds will be donated to PALNA.    

Eighty two artworks including Paintings, Sculptures, Mixmedia, Limited Edition Prints, Digital Art and Photographs are presented in a medley of three curated formats:

Remembering M F Hussain On His 10th Death Anniversary; Inspirations From Our Heritage; Flora, Fauna & Beyond.  

It would be a much appreciated and heartwarming gesture on your part to purchase  one or more of these artworks to help these children.

Maqbool Fida Hussain developed a style which is instantaneously recognisable, the heightened tonal exasperations of his created forms, resonated, being combined by his influence of art movements such as Cubism and Expressionism, and yet unrelentingly anchored to his roots. His artistic expressions pulsate with the identity of timelessness, his forms not only celebrate the sacred relics of the past but also embers the essence of thriving life. He was at the forefront of our modernism movement and constantly influenced the very genesis of modern India’s artistic evolution. His creations continue to proffer an ongoing narrative which sustains its relevance amidst the ever-fleeting nature of the present. The artist has indeed played a pivotal role in introducing independent India’s art to a wider audience both within India and internationally.

D V S Krishna completed his graduation in painting from JNTU Hyderabad in 1996 . His works reflect a stark inspiration of the Temple sculptures from Andhra Pradesh, he creates such forms that are reminiscent of them but they still encompass a signature, which is definitely personal in character. Thus the forms are a blend of traditional structural patterns and personal expression. The Fibre glass sculptures by the artist are introspective in nature.The solitary free standing Bust of the protagonist reinstates a meditative, serene and quiet mood.A single bright hue Falls unanimously throughout his sculptures and accentuates the facial features to emerge in a soft, glossy and perfect brilliance.

Kiki du Toit has been passionate about art all her life. Art has always been her refuge and a path towards understanding and interpreting the world around her.She has an affinity with India and its people on a level that makes her believe she has spent previous lives in this magical country . She aims to capture a subject’s inner story by unveiling a hidden part of their personality, their unique and  authentic quality. She captures imperfections through highlighting the ever-changing self. Her larger-than-life characters leap off the canvas with strong expressions and an air of mystery and are infused with her own personal memories, emotions, and desire. Her paintings are open and poetic, delicate and purposeful. The Divine Cow series encapsules so much of what India represents to her. The cow centre stage , but wrapped in fashion and whimsy. Nothing is what is expected, everything is open but so much is hidden beneath layers of history and habit.

Artspeaks India was founded and conceptualized as an arts and culture initiative. At the heart of its philosophy is a desire to liberate a language and vocabulary intrinsic to the arts themselves, to provide a scaffolding for form and matter to enunciate their own aesthetic and interpretive frames. In short, to facilitate, highlight, sensitise, and bear witness to the singular and myriad ways in which the arts might speak: to us, to each other and most significantly, for themselves. Artspeaks India’s first show organised at Epicentre Delhi, and titled Art for Art’s Sake was an attempt to flesh out this idea and explore the possibility of unburdening art from preconceived categories and lenses of perception. The team at Artspeaks India never hesitates to ask a pertinent question regarding the role of the viewer, and the need to consider more seriously the implicit and fresh art critical resources a viewer might bring to the appreciation of art. Inspired by this vision, and refusing to limit its understanding of the field of art to canonical definitions only, Artspeaks India has over the years been at the helm of a wide range of artistic endeavours.

These include design ,public arts, literature,promotion of heritage, local and indigenous art forms, multimedia initiatives encompassing cinema, theatre and other performing arts and pedagogical ventures like workshops and talks. Over the last decade, Artpeaks India has organised a plethora of exhibitions in various media and formats ranging from fiberglass sculpture to painting, both figurative and abstract, photography and film.
