Arts Week at DPS Agra

At Junoon, we believe that young people must regularly have access to artists and their arts practices, to seep in the spirit of the arts. Such exposure can be transformative and life-changing.

We have curated a week-long, immersive experience, the Arts at Play Week that combines exposure, learning and practice to open out the horizons of the mind for young people, while simultaneously building value for rigour, reflection, effort and determination. The students experience the power of teamwork and collaboration, and the joys of free creative expression. They learn how to transform working with what you have into magic and delight and that it is in their power to create an interesting life for themselves.

It is to this end that we are delighted to offer this magical experience to the primary and middle school students of Delhi Public School, Agra.

Bikram Ghosh is an actor and director, and a founding member of the Tadpole Repertory, one of Delhi's most famous theatre groups. He is also a coordinator for Tadpole's Looking Glass Project, which runs theatre workshops for people of all ages- children as well as adults- focused on encouraging theatre and creativity as a vehicle for recreation and healthy living.

Aagaaz Theatre Trust is an arts based organisation seeking to weave a more equitable urban fabric, where we can engage with each other respectfully, as equals. They do this by creating inclusive learning spaces that nurture curiosity and critical thought while creating safe spaces for dialogue. Engaging children and young adults across social and geographical boundaries, they relentlessly question "what is" to probe "what could and should be", so that we all may learn ways to act and perform beyond just the stage.

Anil Srinivasan is an accomplished classical pianist, the first to be awarded the coveted Sangeet Natak Akademi youth award in 2010 for creative and experimental music, India's national honour for musicians under 35. His various collaborative works with several of India's top artistes have come in for critical acclaim. He is best known for his collaboration with Sikkil Gurucharan, with whom he has produced ten highly popular albums. Importantly, he is the founder of the hugely successful "Rhapsody" music education initiative, to take the classical arts through structured, systematic syllabi delivered through schools using a combination of physical classroom learning and online support, that reaches out to nearly 75000 children across Southern India.

Anshumani Ruddra is an author and game designer based in Bangalore (where he is deeply embedded into the startup ecosystem). He predominantly writes in the speculative fiction genre. He is the author of India's first multiplayer gamebook for young adults, The Enemy of My Enemy, and its sequel Banana Republic. He is also the author of Dorje's Stripes and Crickematics. His short stories have appeared in the following collections by Scholastic: Seven Science Fiction Stories, The Moustache Maharishi and Other Unlikely Stories Superhero Spooky Stories.
