Power of Seeing

By Studio Abhyas

The winning entry of the Delhi Within: An Ideas Competition “Power of Seeing” is an ongoing community-led initiative of Studio Abhyas. The project involves engaging with school children to adopt a street element in their immediate surroundings and carefully documenting its progress over time. The platform also facilitates interface for the students with municipal agencies through the use of “Right to Information” and helps raise awareness through lectures, neighbourhood meetings and public events. The project fundamentally looks at proactively engaging children with their immediate surroundings and helping develop a sense of ownership towards their city. The project ultimately aims to be able to document all case histories, insights and narratives compiled by the students and disseminate this knowledge through the medium of text books for raising awareness on a wider scale.
