Zoo Mania at Kalaghoda!

No Comments 1375 Views1

The installation is the culmination of four animals – an elephant, butterfly, seahorse and a fish – creatures from water, land and air.

The installation shows the importance of every creature, be it as giant as an elephant or as small as a butterfly. Every creature’s role is very essential in the ecosystem and for its better functioning.

Created by:

8 to 12 year old students of
Mahalaxmi Mumbai Public School and 
Sitaram Mill Mumbai Public School –
MCGM schools run in partnership with The Akanksha Foundation

ELEFISHISTIC: Installation at the Kalaghoda

No Comments 754 Views3

We chain them, abuse them, whip them, shoot them, eat them, shoo them, beat them, kick them. It’s a pity they don’t know to speak, if they did, our ears would have bled with the echo of their expletives.

Animals! These wonderful creatures deserve to be free, in their homeland, in the midst of lush green trees and idyllic mountains.

This model is a reminder of how these rock stars need to survive happily, just like you and me, and we need to help them find their perfect place rather than driving them towards extinction.

There are five animals that are merged together in the model, as if forming a whole, asking you take notice of their plight, their beauty and their struggles. All of them have decently long life spans, but do we really let them live that long….THINK!

Installation created by:

8 to 14 year old students of
Laxmi Nagar Mumbai Public School and
Shindewadi Mumbai Public School –

CRAZY ANIMALS: Installation at the Kalaghoda

No Comments 769 Views1

The Akanksha Foundation is proud to say that our students have 4 art installations this year in the children’s section at the Museum Gardens.

This installation depicts the unity and fluidity of our ecosystem. We are all shells of life, connected and vast. The way each animal fits with the other, we want to depict the similarity between us all, animals and humans alike. We are all one, part of one beautiful ecosystem, coexisting and living.

Installation created by:

7 to 13 year old students of
Abhyudaya Nagar Mumbai Public School  
Natwar Nagar Mumbai Public School  
Wadi Bunder Mumbai Public School –

The Stories A Wall Can Tell

No Comments 895 Views3

We believe art can bring different people together, tell their stories in a unique way, be a way to unwind and connect with yourself and others. We believe art can have a huge impact on our lives and there are examples of that all around us.

Art for Akanksha came together with a team of volunteers from Godrej to do all of that and a little bit more.

On World Volunteer Day, around 60 volunteers from Godrej painted with 6 Akanksha alumni to transform the walls of a pukka Municipal School in Mumbai. This group together helped over a 125 children repaint the walls of their schools – walls that they saw everyday with messages that would remind them of the importance of health and sanitation in their school as well as home.
