Spread the love

Dream a Dream, along with Artflute invites artists across the city to share art that inspires questions and engages with the idea of reimagining the education system for all our children instead of going back to ‘business-as-usual’ on December 13, 2020. Artists ranging from visual artists to musicians, spoken word poets to stand-up comedians are invited to inspire others through their multiple art forms to reimagine how we receive education through this event supported by Dream a Dream in association with the #WhatIf movement.

Dream a Dream is a Bangalore based non-profit that works to empower young people from vulnerable backgrounds to overcome adversity and flourish in a fast-changing world. Artflute, a beloved online marketplace for world contemporary art, believes in exploring new ways of connecting and communicating to influence the world around us using art.

‘#WhatIf’ started as a collective movement with views and perspectives from a variety of stakeholders and change-makers associated with the field of education with the aim to reimagine the existing system. Initiated by Dream a Dream, the movement expanded with 30+ partners engaging actively to reimagine education and chalk out compelling action built from a lens of empathy.

“The best of humanity and humanitarianism comes from the arts. Art influences and moves us to become better versions of ourselves. Dream a Dream with its collaboration with Artflute has invited artists from across the world to be a part of the #WhatIf movement to share their creative voice towards reimagining the existing education system.” says Suchetha Bhat, CEO, Dream a Dream. In response, 60 artists from 8 countries have spoken up.

“The initiative gravitates in finding ways to merge the two worlds of Art & Impact and initiate a dialogue to take deliberation forward into creating a community. We had artists from over 8 countries respond to our invitation to reimagining a better world for every child all over the world. This initiative as part of ChurchStreetFirst signifies transitioning into a post-pandemic world inviting people of Bangalore to share their voice for all our young people.”, says Padmaja Nagarur from Artflute.

The Church Street event will include an art exhibition of the #WhatIf open call entries, an open mic event, and an interactive art installation. Young people from Dream a Dream will also be showcasing their works as part of this initiative.
