Artspeaks India Outreach is the social development and community service initiative of Artspeaks India. Our multidisciplinary arts & cultural projects are the facilitators to transform lives and ensure sustained livelihood. Over the last five years Artspeaks India Outreach has provided opportunities and support in streamlining lives towards sustaining livelihoods. The objective is to empower and equip the deserving with the skills inherent to the arts and revive traditional art practices by creating windows for their exposure. We connect and enhance communities through art and aspire individuals through creativity. Artspeaks india is committed to the practice and promotion of art therapy as a priority area thus involving the encouragement of free self expression through the arts as a remedial, diagnostic and therapeutic activity.
There is no greater insight than recognising, when we save our children- we save humanity, we save the future. As Covid-19 wreaked havoc on our country, we must talk of those left behind in the storm in unimaginable suffering- the children of the nation. The National Commission of Protection of Child Rights informed the Supreme Court that over 9,300 in the country were orphaned or abandoned amidst the pandemic. As our nation struggles amidst a dire health crisis, Artspeaks India Outreach has joined hands with PALNA- a home and adoption centre for lost and abandoned children managed by Delhi Council of Child Welfare (DCCW) to protect and safeguard the lives of children affected by the Covid-19 storm. Over the last 5 years, The ArtSpeaks India Outreach Program has sought to transform lives and refurbish livelihoods through its fundraisers. Every contribution counts. Let’s change the lives of countless children through the medium of art!
Palna has been a safe haven for children who are orphaned and abandoned, since the last four decades. The organisation has placed over 2,800 children in loving and caring homes after rigorous screening and evaluation. It is the love that makes a family, not DNA. Let’s come together and do our part in saving these children, the future of our nation.
