Dharavi Biennale - printing workshop

Dharavi Biennale 
The Dharavi Biennale is a two year process leading to an exhibition in 2015. It blends art and science to share information on urban health and to showcase the contribution of the people of Dharavi to Mumbai’s economic and cultural life. The project has been organised by SNEHA (Society for Nutrition, Education and Health Action), an NGO working to improve the health of women and children in Mumbai’s informal settlements. With four themes - art, health, recycling and vitality - the Biennale invites Dharavi residents to meet, educate themselves on urban health, learn new skills, and produce locally resonant artworks that are authentic, honest and relevant.
