Children Theatre

Another accomplishment of Sarathi was working with under privileged children. Karnataka Nataka Academy and Sarathi jointly conducted theatre workshop 350 children of various slums of Bangalore. It was feast to our eyes to watch these children enacting in 10 plays at Ravindra Kalashetra, Bangalore.  This was possible because of Sarathi’s strong rapport with NGOs, Media, Cultural and Government agencies and enabled in  putting in--place logistics to organize training and staging of the plays. We initiated this concept to spread the message Development through Culture, which is one of the Millennium Development Goals strategies developed by United Nations.

This was the first of its kind in India wherein children from the grass root level were involved in the main stream drama festival. There was an over whelming response from the community and the children. This Festival was sponsored by one of the most prestigious cultural group Bangalore Habba.
