Engagement, art and the Sustainable Development Goals: connecting communities with goals in rural Nepal
Our project engages a community in Janakpur in the southern plains of Nepal about the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) using intergenerational discussions between artists and students, co-creative wall painting, and an SDG festival at a local school.
Specifically we will:
• Produce images of relevance to young and old which represent the SDGs and their meaning to local communities from the Mithila culture
• Enable discussion about the achievement of the SDGs, and what might facilitate or impede their achievement among teachers, students, artists, political representatives, health workers and community members
• Provide an exemplar about how to engage communities in the achievement of the SDGs.
