Kanthari to Inspire

Learning mela to grow

The idea is simple - Different ages - Different skills and the joy is learning from each other - from different ages.

Many more learning spaces created by each other

Many more teachers
Many more ways of learning

Mixed Media

Mixed media with Kanchan started with a need to make something using junk. She asked us to collect few random things and compose...old pencils, metal emblem, dried seed, pista shells, glass pieces...we used old newspaper to give texture in the background. Added colors and we saw the magic when our frames came alive!

Reach out for HELP

We were travelling, during the trip

One stranger squeezed one child’s hand while passing by
Few people on bike came and asked questions to a group of kids
Kids traveling in an auto and the action of the driver felt unsafe

Some of these incidences left kids feeling “unsafe, scared and worried”.

Most of them ‘did not reach out to the help nearby’, either they ignored (this did not help) or just stayed with their fear (developed more fear), or passed the fear to others (narrating the incidents again).

Resources

Often asked “how does one know what one is interested in?” Exposure to resources is one of the key aspect of open learning - resources can be physical, tools, people or even places. Many times just the exposure and usage in various works helps a learner to connect with self.

Many discoveries happens through resources

A room full of junk (sorted and labelled)

A wall full of tools

A cupboard filled with art and craft supply

A nook equipped to cater to various interests

Connecting with Real World!

We got Trampoline in gift

Some of us were involved in buying and installing

Some of us also read the usual manual and explained the usage

And still the Trampoline got torned in some places (the stitches came out)- it was too soon for this deterioration.

It was the time to INSPECT and UNDERSTAND what went wrong or what can be changed in future!

Book sharing

How do we expand our choices? By sharing our choices with others in  the community! Book sharing, all of us (irrespective of the age) shared about book/s in closing circle on Friday to enjoy the world of books. 

A trip to Badami

Travelling teaches so many lessons, difficult to even think while sitting in the comfort of our homes. The trip to Badami was no different for us.

A group of 25 (7 to 50 yrs old) people, needed to board train in two minutes...we did it. It's not about that two minutes but the opportunity of a huge preparation behind that two minutes boarding.

Train stops at Badami for two minutes..we all got down safely. It's not about that one minute, but the responsibility each one took for self to ensure safe travel.
