In February I had a chance to visit Nandhivaram, Panchayat Union Primary School, Kancheepuram. NalandaWay organized volunteer educators, therapists and social workers to go to this school to provide a regular therapeutic program using movement and visual arts. This school is in rural Tamil Nadu, about 2 hours south west of Chennai. This area was heavily effected by the monsoon floods from December 2015. Students used multiple forms of art for expression; including storytelling, dance/movement, song, and visual arts. It was one of the best experiences of my life. Although these kids had witnessed a lot of tragedy and hardship the school was clearly a respected structure within the community and students could feel safe enough to enjoy being children once again. The pictures below share what the children were involved in on the day I observed. I found the kids to be friendly, fun, happy, and introspective. These kids loved the arts workshop and it was written all over their faces.
