Aravani Art Project aims to embrace the Transgender Community by creating consciousness, well being through art, awareness & social participation.
*Aravani Art Project’s objective is to organically create a space for the transgender community in the society by voicing our expressions mainly by visual arts.
Art as an expression, art as recreation and the idea that art is available and viable to all. This opportunity will enable them to access and understand this. The idea is to involve *Aravanis in the process of creativity and help them be a part of the process, to be able to use art as one of the tools of expression…*expressing stories of freedom, dreams of acceptance and hoping for possibilities.
*Aravani (derived from Tamil Nadu, India) is a chosen name to remove the innuendo of the word ‘Hijra’ , a non stigmatized name like that was the intention.The meaning of the term “Aravani” literally means a person who worships Lord Aravan.
The project embraces anyone who wants to create and make a difference with the community.
You may consider a modest donation — however much you can afford, when it comes from the heart, it’s the kind of gesture that makes us warm with appreciation.
