Art For a cause
Snehasadan is one of the first NGOs in Mumbai committed to helping street children. Started in 1962 in a simple hut, they now have 19 houses and specialised centers for homeless children and are celebrating their Golden Jubilee this year. The French Association for Abandoned Children, Mumbai’s very own Art Loft and High Street Phoenix are all coming together to organise an exhibition celebrating the 50 years of work carried out by Snehasadan. Aptly titled ’50 Years of Love,’ it is a large scale international project and has been created by the French TV and film director Vincent Lauth. The exhibition will feature exceptional pieces of art by the French artist group Hypothese 222 as well as renowned Indian artists such as Arzan Khambatta, Brinda Miller and Sunil Padwal.

You will also get to see works of the children that Snehasadan has supported trough the years. Two pieces, Dream Catcher and The Cube particularly stand out from the exhibition. Dream Catcher is an installation designed by the Indian Trio and is made up of several mouse traps. While The Cube is by Hypothese 222 and is based on an old European game which allows children to build different pictures by shifting around the many cubes.

The children of Snehasadan not only got to take part in the exhibition but also had the opportunity to be mentored by the artists. The children remember the experience as ‘Bahot acha,’ and one of them tells us, “We learnt to draw and design. They taught us to first see the shape then draw. We got new colours and learnt new methods of painting. Their painting was good. We learnt to make portraits, though very few of our portraits looked like us. We had a good time with those artists.”
