About the Facilitator:

Ruchira Das

During the several years that Ruchira homeschooled her two daughters, an engagement with the arts was an integral part of their lives. She believes that intense aesthetic experiences are absolutely imperative for any child to grow well -to grow to be a sensitive, imaginative, creative person. The desire to extend such experiences to children beyond her home was the genesis of ThinkArts. In just over two years, ThinkArts has reached more than 10000 children across three cities in India. They have worked in different spaces like schools, galleries, museums, and heritage spaces. Ruchira has been a part of several international groups - she is an ARThink South Asia Fellow 2015-16, A Global Fellow at ISPA 2016, a faculty member at INTERIM 2015 at Srishti College of Art, Bangalore, and a participant at the International Teachers and Participatory Artists Conference, ITAC 3 at Edinburgh in August 2016.
