Button Mushrooms, an initiative:
Button Mushrooms is a venture initiated by PM Shivani and Isham Sethi, Graduates of Sri Venkateswara College, in an attempt to put art on the pedestal it deserves while contributing their bit to the society as well. They derive this campassion for social causes and passion for art through their experience of theatre (street play) during their college years.
Kachi Gali – Rang Desh Ke, under
the social campaign, ‘SocialKantaap’, is a slum painting event sponsored by Shalimar Paints
and initiated by a team of Delhi University students and graduates. The initiative, in collaboration with more than 20 art societies and social service societies throughout the University is undertaken to use art as a catalyst of change and unfold the power of art in a way never seen before.
Phase 1 of the event aims to cover a demarcated part of a slum in Chanakyapuri, named Sanjay Camp on the 17th and 18th of March with designs and murals with a motive to beautify the place. Event on the first day includes a base coat on the walls to make the walls ready for graffiti. Second day involves the role of artists to re-design the slum. We aim to cover about 1000 houses to make it Delhi’s first artistic slum. We have received a turnout of about 500 registrations till date and expect to increase the scope as and when more people join us in this cause.
