Delhi Education Minister Ms Atishi launched Delhi Arts Curriculum report on the innovative arts curriculum developed by the NalandaWay Foundation for students from underserved communities in Delhi. 

The report promises to provide valuable insights into the transformative impact of art-based education.The Delhi Arts Curriculum, which was piloted in nine government schools in Delhi has transformed the lives of 3980 students and 89 teachers and has enabled students aged three to ten to develop specific competencies in five different art forms, including visual arts, music, dance, theatre, and media arts. 

In addition to fostering creative abilities, the curriculum also focuses on the development of social-emotional skills that are crucial for success in life.The report launch event was held at Sarvodaya Bal Vidyalaya in Mandi House, New Delhi, and included an art exhibit featuring an installation created by the students, as well as other artwork produced during the pilot project. 

The event is open to the public from 10 am to 6 pm on Wednesday 19th April 2023. The NalandaWay Foundation's collaboration with the Directorate of Education, GNCTD has transformed schools into vibrant and artful spaces that enable creative exploration for both students and teachers. 

The report launch event is an excellent opportunity to witness the transformative power of art-based education and gain valuable insights into its impact on underserved communities.Sriram V, Founder & CEO, NalandaWay Foundation: NalandaWay has always believed in the transformative power of the arts, "For us, arts have been a key driver for social change. 

3 years ago, when we signed the MoU with the Delhi government to introduce an arts curriculum in government schools, we used the opportunity to introduce visual arts, music, theatre, dance, and media arts every day for all ages from all ages 3 to 13 years. 

At the end of the artful academic year, we were thrilled by the outcomes for children as well as teachers. The arts curriculum led children to appreciate art, learn art skills and improve socioemotional skills- an increase in student attendance, participation, confidence, and social skills was observed; while for the teachers, it led to improved creative confidence in teaching arts."

He continued, "Following this pilot project, we now plan to continue our partnership with the Delhi government for the next phase of scale, by training government teachers on art-based skills and other recommendations cited in the report.  

This is informed from our work across State governments, including that of Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Bihar, Jharkhand and J&K. Over the last 16 years, NalandaWay Foundation's work in urban slums, anganwadis, children's homes, rural panchayat, government and corporation schools across the country has benefited more than 5 million (50,00,000) vulnerable children. 

This is a step in taking it to every child in the national capital of Delhi."Shri Himanshu Gupta, Director Education & Sports, Govt of NCT of Delhi: The Delhi Arts Curriculum, developed as a means to include arts in the education of all children in Delhi Government schools, has stemmed from the recommendations put forth in the National Education Policy, 2020. 

The curriculum was launched as a pilot in selected Sarvodaya schools following training for teachers. I have seen the students engage actively in Nalanda Way art classes, exploring the world of visual art, music, dance, theatre, and media arts, and tapping into the artist within. 

Walking into the art classes, joy is apparent on the faces of children as they immerse themselves in the world of art. Learning about techniques used by artists like Frida Kahle, Vincent van Gogh and S.H. Raza amongst others, has opened doors to the Indian and global context. 

The report titled "Delhi Arts Curriculum: Findings from the Pilot Study", addresses the need for children to engage in joyful and artistic experiences as a part of mainstream education. Coming at a time when learning loss is a pertinent challenge, the report provides important findings and recommendations to integrate art into the learning and development of every child. 

We are now working towards exploring the next steps of intervention to ensure the inclusion of arts education in all Delhi Government schools.

About the NalandaWay Foundation

NalandaWay Foundation is a non-profit organisation that works with children from some of the most underserved districts in India, working with them to raise their voices and issues through visual arts, music, dance, radio, theatre, and films. We use arts as the primary agent of change to work towards holistic education, enable mental well-being, and learn expressive arts for children and adolescents from underserved communities while following the Whole Child Development (WCD) model. 

Since inception, our focus has remained the same while our programs have evolved from directly reaching out to children in rural areas and urban slums to working with anganwadis, children’s homes, rural panchayat, government, and corporation schools across the country, benefiting more than 5 million (50,00,000) vulnerable children so far.

Over the years, NalandaWay has gained robust experience in end-to-end project management and delivery of large-scale programs in several Indian states. We are currently partnering with state governments to implement our programs across Tamil Nadu, Delhi-NCR, Karnataka, Kerala, Bihar, Jammu and Kashmir and Jharkhand.
