Street Art and Visual Storytelling with Shilo Shiv Suleman

Join Shilo Shiv Suleman, INK Fellow and creator of the Fearless collective, in a workshop exploring Art as a medium for Social Change. The Fearless Collective is over 250 artists from across the world that harness the power of the poster to use art as a medium of social and personal change against sexual violence and gender inequality. Launched as a reaction to the gang rape of Nirbhaya in Delhi in December 2012, Fearless became a virally shared online campaign as well as a guerilla campaign across the streets of India.

As an extension of the project, Shilo has been painting walls across the country as a reclaiming of public space through art by women. Each wall is a collaborative act of defiance and reclaiming of that space through positive and personal affirmations contextual to the space they're painted in. 

Through the workshop we'll be looking at using street art and visual storytelling as a powerful medium of social change with a focus on the gender struggle in India.

The Art of Origami with Rajvardhan Kadam

Origami is the traditional Japanese art of folding paper to create three-dimensional shapes and structures.  In an effort to preserve his work, origami artist Rajvardhan Kadam began incorporating a wire mesh into his structures to make them more resilient, bringing about a revolution in the art of Modular Origami.

Modular Origami is where you make and replicate small units and combine them to form a large, complex structure. Using the same units, a number of different structures can be made. At INK Live 2014, aside from showing us how to make some of the more traditional models, Rajvardhan plans to create a Modular Origami Structure and teach the essentials of the art through a fun interactive workshop.
