Non Profit Trust
Kri Foundation is a Non profit Trust and a small initiative to spruce up our dirty, spat upon walls, bringing our walls to life through art, performance and poetry. This is a fun initiative which hopes to bring together art enthusiasts, public space 'cleaners' and lovers of aesthetics.
The love for our city got us to get out and start hands on work in public spaces. Why wait for someone else to make our city beautiful.
and what better canvas than our kutti chevaru :)
Our mission is to bring about a social responsibility towards our streets/city and to address the problems of waste management.
Our aim is to slowly expand and hopefully inspire people to start owning their surroundings and in turn create a self sustaining community.

"One way of using public space is to misuse it. But the other way of using it is to actually be innovative, and there are a lot of fun ways to go about doing it."
In Kri Foundation from PechaKucha Night Chennai Vol. 9, Namrata talks about how the Kri Foundation uses art to transform the city's neglected spaces. She shares on the power of art in revamping not only the physical walls of a city, but also the way the community uses it.
This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Tuesday, August 24th, 2016.
