Peripheries And Crossovers: Art As Social Practice 2021

Peripheries & Crossovers: Art As Social Practice is a multi-city socially engaged art project that aims to demonstrate art's role as an agent for change. Spanning several locations and covering diverse artistic practices, the project hopes to affect cultural shifts to counter gender-based injustice and address issues around urbanisation in India. The project treats local context(s) seriously and sensitively.


About this edition

For the year 2021, Khoj is delighted to announce the start of three new projects as part of Peripheries & Crossovers: art as social practice. The participants for this year are Stuti Pradhan, Saleha Sapra & Riddhi Batra and Swati Janu. For the year 2021, Stuti Pradhan will work with migrant women in the informal sector to bring out stories from the North East to inform a participatory and gender-responsive policy framework. Saleha Sapra & Riddhi Batra aim to work with resource-poor women vendor groups in various locations across New Delhi who have been impacted by spatial injustice, to re-imagine, reclaim and co-create their places of work . Swati Janu’s year-long engagement will focus on rights based advocacy with the women of Yamuna Khadar to rethink their collective imaginations of the city.
