In this Session, St+art co-founder Akshat Nauriyal tells the story of placemaking through Art Districts in India and explores the social impact of the initiative in Indian cities.
Placemaking is a multi-faceted approach to the planning, design and management of public spaces. It makes use of a local community's assets, inspiration, and potential, to create public spaces that promote health, happiness, and well-being. St+art India is a not-for-profit organisation, founded in 2014 with the goal of making art more democratic in Indian cities. By taking art out of museums and galleries, and embedding it within the spaces people inhabit and navigate every day, St+art explores the synergy between art and its ability to transcend socio-cultural barriers.
In this session, St+art India co-founder Akshat Nauriyal will showcase some of the street art projects by St+art, focusing on the creation of ‘Art Districts’ and placemaking, and talk us through their findings about the social impact of these spaces.
