“It’s like warm cozy art picnics in the sun filled with conversations and joy, communities coming together to find ways  to reuse waste material and turn them into pieces of art.”

Collaborative Art Space’s Community Art Project, will have individuals living, studying or working in a community – a building, a society, a locality or an institution (school, college, companies or organizations) – collaborate with each other to create an environmentally friendly art piece.

About

The community art project brings together people from various walks of life who share a space and spend time in it to create an environmentally friendly art piece that must be at least 50% made out of waste material.  

Each community must submit a proposal beforehand denoting what they plan to do, the materials they plan to use & the team members. Only after the approval of the proposal can the work move forward.

The project will begin mid-January and finish in February. The online exhibition showcasing the work will be held in March.

Prize money of INR 15,000/- will be given to one winning group. The next two best groups will get free entry in next year’s event.

All participants will be provided a digital certificate of participation.

An e-catalogue will be made featuring all the artworks created during the project.
