Good Graffiti Fest 2017 in Mumbai from social startup Karmyo looks to instill social responsibility

Thousands turned up at the Good Graffiti Fest themed ‘Impact starts with I’ at Navi Mumbai with an attempt to instill social responsibility amongst the citizens. The event was a fusion of creative expressions and inspirational talks.

Good Graffiti Fest (GGF) 2017, is soon becoming a platform for emerging artists and social change leaders to showcase their work, exchange ideas and inspire the youth. The event had a clown, named Happy, that along with cheering up the crowd also indulged in deep conversations. Suhani Mohan, founder of Saral Designs, spoke about the grave issues of menstrual hygiene in India and the innovative approach her organization is taking to address the issue. Another speaker, Ashish Shrivastav, cofounder of Shiksharth, had travelled from Chhattisgarh, where he has been working to improve the education landscape for tribal children.

Over twenty social organizations were involved in GGF, including Teach For India and Goonj. Children from Aastha Foundation, a home for specially abled kids, in Vadodara, had also travelled for the event and put on a dance performance for visitors. Impact Guru was the crowd-funding platform for GGF, where the paintings are being given out as rewards to the contributors.

Through the two days, over twenty-five professional artists created live paintings on social issues. People were encouraged to indulge in ‘Community Graffiti’ on the long canvas walls set up to symbolise ‘the power of community’.

Organised by social startup Karmyo, the event included workshops and art competition for kids, music performances, a young beatboxer named Isha and performance by guitarist Varun Singh. Karmyo works towards the mission of encouraging young people to become more socially responsible.
