Working on art projects in public spaces

The St+art India foundation is a not-for-profit organization that works on art projects in public spaces.

The aim of the foundation is to make art accessible to a wider audience by taking it out of the conventional gallery space and embedding it within the cities we live in - making art truly democratic and for everyone.

Artists from around the world along with St+art India Foundation are changing the way we experience art on the streets of India, one wall at a time.

It started painting the city in more colours than just red and have produced many an Instagram worthy walls for the young crowd on social media with the help of some of the most popular names from the world of art - it includes names from India, Netherlands, Australia, Belgium, Singapore, New Zealand, Poland, Mexico, Japan and more.

Their project began with Shahpur Jat area in South Delhi - which exists as a reminder of pre and post Mughal era and has continued unto Lodhi Art District - which covers the residential area and more. It’s a treat for the Delhi-wallahs and the visitors trying to get in touch with the heritage value of the city that has witnessed stories over centuries.

I request you and the editorial board to kindly assign a journalist to further pursue this story in detail. It will add light to issues related to urban art installations, funding for art in public spaces and the issues of inclusiveness of such art.
