Event Description : ART : Alliance Française de Delhi in association with Muktangan presents SHAPE, Art for social action

SHAPE is an education initiative undertaken by Delhi based artist, Probir Gupta, to provide utilitarian pottery training workshops for underprivileged children. An almost self-funded project that has been ongoing for the past four years. He intends to not just equip them with skills that can help them earn a living in the future but also offer them therapeutic healing. Neuroscience explains the therapeutic impact of pottery - alleviating stress, enabling an optimistic outlook, and improving concentration and self-worth, among others. He believes these children need as much of this healing as possible for them to take on life and the challenges that will arise when they become young adults.
SHAPE - 2019 is the second edition of an annual exhibition which offers an avenue for the utilitarian pottery produced by these children to be exhibited along with the works of some of the most prominent contemporary artists who have come together in solidarity to support this project. All the funds raised by the sales of artworks, pottery, and donations will go back into the sustainability and growth of this project.
