She has recently convened the first International Conference on Gender Mainstreaming in India and has been working towards making ArtsAcre ‘an Inclusive Centre’ using various modes and methods. A practicing painter & sculptor herself, she understands the healing benefits of art and hence for her inclusiveness also means inclusion of all age groups.
