Khoya's launch at INK2011

Khoya, a storybook for iPad, is a series of interactive narratives for children that was launched at INK2011 by INK2010 Fellow Shilo Shiv Suleman. In this talk, Shilo takes us through the inspiration behind idea.

Shilo illustrated her first book for children at the age of 16 and has illustrated eight others since with some of the most well known publishing houses in India. She has also been actively involved in setting up community art projects and collectives that get people to appreciate and create street art in their surroundings as well as use art and design to bring socially relevant issues in India to the forefront. INKtalks believes in Shilo’s talent and has supported her project Khoya since its very beginning, by providing her with the platform to share her artistic talents with our INK2011 conference attendees.
