Did you know that Delhi is home to India's first open-air Public Art District?
The Lodhi Colony in South Delhi presents both modern and ancient reminiscences of the city. It is not only home to the newly made Lodhi Art district, and luxury restaurants and homes, but also lots of our city's heritage - Lodhi gardens and various tombs, for instance. This locality can take you back and forth in time.
It is no surprise that this is where the Lodhi Art district happened to bloom. Join us in this scavenger hunt to explore this union of tradition, modernity, and discourse. Through this scavenger hunt, we will actively engage with the community and try to understand how public spaces can be turned into a medium of discourse that encourages people to engage in conversations while also becoming more accepting of diversity and diverse opinions.
Allow yourself to indulge in an understanding of your community like never before. If you're lucky, you might just find some of the artists from India, Italy, New Zealand, and other parts of the world, painting their way through, always more than happy to strike a conversation with you!
Inspiring Delhi is an Edbridge Initiative which aims to encourage city exploration through community engagement. Our series of walks and scavenger hunts will take you through different parts of the city, engaging with this city with a culturally rich, diverse history, while also ravishing some of the best street food in town, or bumping into the next gully boy! Perhaps you will be inspired to translate some of your findings and insights into a unique project.
