Art motifs on bags and cards

Grade XII ISC students  from a leading school in Bangalore, continued their community action project to create awareness and promote the dying Kurumbas art form in the Nilgiris.  A group of about 10 students dedicated their field trip to visiting a Kurumbas tribal village,  learning about the core tribal art motifs from tribal artists and to design and produce bags, cards, etc. that would be part of a tribal art exhibition cum sale.  The funds generated would be used to fund and finance similar projects in the future.  The dedication and efforts of the students and guidance and encouragement they received from their school management and accompanying teachers will go a long way to ensure that this and other traditional knowledge systems will survive and flourish.



KARI is an initiative by One Earth Foundation to create awareness about the dying art form of Kurumbas style of painting, train young Kurumbas children and to provide livelihood opportunities to current and upcoming artists.  For further information, please contact
