Create Postcard Art Packs for at-risk children in South India
In India, Children’s Day is celebrated on 14 November. In collaboration with Sankalpa: Art Journeys, we will be distributing Postcard Art Kits to children as gifts. Sankalpa: Art Journeys will then conduct art making sessions with the art materials received.
Each Postcard Art Pack will contain:
- Your handmade postcard
- Your art materials
Share Art Materials through an ART CART
Sankalpa: Art Journeys has produced a Generosity Kit which contains a model-size cardboard version of their life-sized art cart in South India, to encourage individuals to pack art materials inside and take them around to share with others to make art. In support of the local artisans who have made these carts, CARTWHEELS have purchased 12 Generosity Kits.

We will be mobilising 10 ART CARTS!
