UDAAN: EK MEETHA SAPNA works together with artists and communities to increase neighborhood beautification through the arts. Udaan EMS invites artists, children from various schools and local residents to contribute their creative visions to each project, and currently the organization has created various murals throughout the city. Pairing artists, children and communities together creates local pride and transforms urban spaces while simultaneously engaging residents and strengthening their communities.

TRANSFORMING THE WORLD:ONE WALL AT A TIME

Growing Gurgaon

A Community Art Project

Udaan, ek meetha sapna is on a constant look out for creative and talented children. Our bunch of 12 children has become an inspiration in their own community, amongst their people, neighbours and so many more.....The Kanhai Village community not only participated with enthusiasm, they were extremely curious. They could relate with all the issues so closely, that they listened carefully and had deep rooted conversations!

Our enthusiastic visitors @ Good Earth could not believe what they were witnessing.....the fact that these children being from such humble backgrounds, could envision such intense issues of urbanisation, pollution, superstition, class-divide, dignity of labour, urban spaces and such; and express their thoughts and questions to the society through art, was a total high for them! Perhaps the small light of hope so passionately lit by these children will spread far and wide and help the social cause without a doubt. May our young artists grow leaps and bounds.

Our earnest and heartfelt gratitude to Honda 2Wheelers without whose support, this community project would have remained a distant dream for our children.

Here are some special moments from #GrowingGurgaon beautifully captured by our team and well-wishers who were present at both our venues - Kanhai village & Good Earth.

Seeds of Change

Sculpture

 

This 25 ft tall sculpture 'Seeds of Change', is a symbol of change, a strongly announced beginning that we are not giving up and we are not losing. There is Hope for a better future, fresh air to breathe, carefree walks to relax without any fear of accidents, a beautiful city where humanity is alive...and if not in a city of innovation like "Gurugram", then where?

Please visit the sculpture and promote sustainable transportation. Our message is 1 CAR = 10 Bicycles. There is every reason why cycling should be helped to enjoy another Golden Age.

Location: Sector 29 parking lot, opposite Lemon Tree Premier Hotel.

The event was sponsored by Nagarro. They truly believe that art can bring about a change in the society. 

Change the face of the school- Free Pathshala

Paint a School

 

UDAAN HELPED CHANGE THE FACE OF THIS SCHOOL TO HELP EDUCATE CHILDREN! 
This event wouldnt have been possible without Roshan Kumar, founder of Free Pathshala- an initiative where in they promote education amongst children of labourers and migrant workers. 
Udaan took up the challenge to fix this spot and change the face of this school. We painted the school and its surroundings to make it an exciting and clean place for kids to come, learn and grow. 
They can now call this place their own school, something they look forward to each day. 
Lets spread happiness with colour!

Lets be the change, lets paint!

Fix an ugly spot

UDAAN FIXED A 200 METRE WALL AND MADE A MASTERPIECE OUT OF IT!

It's wonderful to see how so many passionate people came together to make a difference. The spot opposite Good Earth, Gurgaon was cleaned by the MCG and Udaan helped fix the 200 metre wall and made a masterpiece out of it! The event was a CSR activity sponsored by Honda in collaboration with the RWA of Malibu Towne. 
Udaan also helped in raising awareness on social issues that often remain ignored. This time we focussed on the Swach Bharat, Beti Bacho and Green India mission. Residents of Malibu Towne, Gurgaon along with volunteers and students from government schools took charge of their city!

The wall became a dumping ground for years. Hours of dedication transformed the space and created Magic!

Malibu Towne, Gurgaon, paints itself green

Paint our spaces and create a masterpiece

An initiative by Udaan: Ek Meetha Sapna along with Malibu Towne residents where children started their summer vacation not only interacting with nature in the morning but also with messages on environment conservation. They explored their creativity by painting trees with lime colours to protect from termite followed by painting old tyres to make a small minion installation and tyre swings. 

Everyone set out to spread the message of a “clean and green Malibu” and over 50 residents and their children took the initiative to save trees by painting their barks and adopting them. It was a special morning for children who came armed with colours, brushes and aprons. Parents were no less excited to participate in the two-day programme.

Lets paint this ugly spot with the help of Nagarro

Fix an ugly spot

Udyog Vihar area near Nagarro office was a dumping zone before Udaan team went there. It's wonderful to see how so many passionate people came together to make a difference. The process started with cleaning the area and then painting the walls with beautiful motifs and earthy tones. Keeping the theme of cycling and sustainable mode of transportation in mind, we created some installations with bicycles and tyres to further create more awareness.

The event was sponsored by Nagarro. They truly believe that art can bring about a change in the society.

Confidence is building amongst children of Udaan as they painted their own school's music room independently with little guidance of our faculty. The abstract forms help us understand the evolved sense of art and their deep connection with music. Their efforts were hugely applauded by their principal, Neelima ma'am as well.
