To bring ceramic art and the magic of clay to wider audiences, JKK has partnered with the Mumbai based Akshara Foundation of Arts and Learning, a not-for-profit public trust that aims to integrate arts and education. The schools’ outreach programme: Arts for All at Breaking Ground envisages a series of artist-run workshops with underprivileged and under-serviced children from local schools.
The belief that arts are integral to learning and they nurture the young to become sensitive and compassionate adults is the premise of this partnership. The aim is to promote both learning through the arts and to bring the ceramic arts in particular, to a wider audience.
Breaking Ground at JKK is an ideal space to create opportunities for children to engage with a medium like clay at different levels. A series of workshops with children from various schools and youth from colleges in Jaipur will be held during the tenure of the Triennale.
Arts for All at Breaking Ground will focus on giving children an educative experience in ceramics. They will be able to interact with the participating artists as well as gain a hands-on creation with clay.
