Art for purpose & Social Change

02 Art for purpose & Social Change

Art is a potent tool to create a vision and raise consciousness for a more just world. It empowers by building a space for expression that challenges racism, casteism, classism, sexism, ableism and other forms of oppression. The DLC Social Impact community promotes and encourages such art that questions mainstream culture and beliefs to transform the perception of power and the dynamics associated with justice, equality and accountability.

Cultural Restoration and Preservation

03 Cultural Restoration and Preservation

Our culture and heritage shapes our individual as well societal identity. Culture has been recognized as part of the international development agenda for the first time under the UN SDGs. This is a huge step towards fostering global citizenships. This comminuty's focus is to preserve the art, history and culture globally through local partnerships and knowledge sharing programs.

The Problem

Besides the on-going problems of lack of awareness of current trends and potential markets, the pandemic has hit the livelihoods of local artisans and craftsmen hard with diminishing exhibitions and trade fairs causing further damage

Who can help

What can you do

Popularise goods made by local artisans on social media; ensure availability of crucial funds for sustainable production; promote digital literacy for participation in online sales

#DLCSocialImpact

India is home to over 7 million artisans and over 3,000 craft forms spread across the country. The numbers could be higher because the sector is unorganized. With the right support and business environment, India could have a billion-dollar marketplace for unique, locally-produced products. Support sustainable growth. #DLCSocialImpact
