Why I do what I do

This website will give you a glimpse into my work as an artist,  community builder and activist. I have been negotiating the world through the lens of a creative entrepreneur for the last two decades. It's been a wonderful journey with a lot of learning and collaborating with people I deeply respect.
In the coming years, I believe that creative thinkers will be crucial to document, stitch, hold and present the world. We are at the very edge of collapse on one side, and of a future that can spin out into unimaginable wonders on the other. I believe we can get to the happier side by working together!

Jaaga: Invitation to Participate in an Urban Community Art-Architecture Experiment

c
July 28th, 2009

Hello,

I am happy to invite you to participate in launching and building Jaaga – Creative Common Ground, a project that I am deeply involved in.

Jaaga is a Do-It-Yourself building project where artists, designers, performers, technologists and anyone who is interested, come together to build an affordable and accessible community cultural space.

Answering the need of the hour for such spaces in urban India, Jaaga is an artistic collaboration that invites and engages the neighbourhood and the creative communities in creating a modular, mobile and temporary structure. An important facet of the project is that this structure can be assembled, dismantled and reassembled at different plots of land across the city, and across cities too…so pretty soon, we could be in your neighbourhood too :)

Phase 1 of this project launches on Sunday, the 2nd of August 2009 from 2pm onwards. Join Pallet Rack Artist Freeman Murray and the Jaaga family in building the Skeleton for this structure.

We are located just off Richmond Road, on Rhenius Street, Opposite the Hockey Stadium in Richmond Town.

Looking forward to seeing you at Jaaga!

Warmly,
Archana
