Shaila Parikh’s distinctive project was materialized through Children and Culture, a new initiative that was introduced in July 2008. This initiative aspires to create an education model for children from marginalized and disadvantaged communities. It explores the creative links between the arts and sciences and offers learning and teaching methods through art therapy, painting, found objects, installation, theatre, performance, design, science, mathematics and language tools. The Center works with various NGOs that cater to the needs of children from Mumbai and Pune.
