The Academy of Arts created a virtual event entitled ‘The Future is Creative’, which introduces disadvantaged children to music, theater, dance and painting.
Recognizing the power of the industry, Mumbai-based Salam Bombay The Foundation organized a virtual event on 13 February entitled The Future is Creative. The event, collected by The Academy of Arts, has an insightful look
‘How ART helps develop cognitive thinking in children who seem to ignore formal education.’
The Salam Bombay Foundation believes that introducing disadvantaged children to music, theater, dance and painting can help them stay in school and build a better future.
The Foundation believes that it is through industry that it equips disadvantaged adolescents with life-sustaining skills that go beyond the formal education system, enabling them to improve even in difficult situations. The test of this thinking is the Foundation’s ground-level realities and its students’ efforts to capture the day-to-day challenges and share relevant insights with our patrons and supporters that help develop the right perspective on the industry.
Prominent panelists for the discussion included Women Center (Padma Shri Awardee, Former Director NSD, Theater Director), Terrence Lewis (Choreographer and Celebrity Judge), Rekha Nigam (Screenwriter, Storyteller and Advertising Professional), Manisha Power (Deputy Director) , Mumbai), Dr. Anuradha Sovani (Writer, Psychologist and Psychotherapist), Dr. Mansi Baudekar (VP, Research and M&E – Salam Bombay Foundation).
