RC-12/21 Bandh Go Creative! ART Camp ART/DEV 10 Vols. 09.08.21 – 21.08.21

Background: At RUCHI we want to use art as a powerful
tool to impart knowledge, increase awareness and target
social issue along with expressing ourselves creatively.
After running this camp for 7 years we have assisted in
facelifting more than 10 schools across villages.
We also work with rural women artisans where we want
to add value to their product using arts.

near Bandh village. It is 30 km from Kalka and 60 km

Self organized city tours and excursions. Old Sikh and
Hindu temples in the near vicinity can be visited.
Nearby Kasauli town is another hill station as a tourist
attraction. A visit to Shimla will offer an opportunity to
see high Himalayan Mountains.

teach and share skills of various creative art forms like
Origami (art of making creative stuff by folding paper),
newspaper bags to help reduce use of plastic, best out

Volunteers can learn these creative techniques and

Himachal Pradesh. Also, volunteers will interact with
villagers of different rural settlements and share and
learn different innovative art forms.
