Adversity intensifies art

My time at the hiv centre for girls in surat, india  

SPRING OF 2019 I HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF VISITING THE HIV CENTRE IN SURAT, INDIA TO HOST AN ART COMPETITION FOR GIRLS WITH HIV. I WANTED TO REVEAL A CONCRETE MESSAGE THROUGH THEIR ARTWORK SO I ASKED THE GIRLS TO ANSWER THE QUESTION:

 

 

WHAT DO YOU VALUE?

I WALKED INTO THE EXPERIENCE KNOWING I'D BE LEFT WITH A CHANGED UNDERSTANDING OF THE HIV COMMUNITY IN INDIA. BUT THE OUTCOME TAUGHT ME SO MUCH MORE ABOUT MY OWN WORLD THAN I COULD HAVE EVER PREDICTED.

TAKE A LOOK AT WORKS COMPLETED BY SEVERAL OF THE GIRLS.

HOVER OVER THE IMAGES TO LEARN MORE. 

Girls

Aged

 3-18

Creating art based on their values

surat, india

The WORLDVIEW that these individuals INTEGRATE inTO their ARTWORK SHEDS LIGHT UPON relevant obstacles facing humanity-BEYOND THE WESTERN HEMISPHERE.

BY empathizing with THEIR PERSPECTIVES, the CREATIONS MADE BY THESE GIRLS can inspire us all to address such universal issues.

the identities of the girls must remain anonymous so their names and faces have been blurred*
