I saw a magnificent unicorn in a garbage dump. Its horn pierced through a pile of vegetables wrapped in a thin plastic sheet”, “…A massive earthquake in the year 2072, got all the buried garbage back to the earth…” Stories like these emerged from Karthavyam’s first bookmaking workshop that was conducted by Srivi Kalyan, an author and arts educator.
Today, when news and information on social problems are buzzing everywhere, many of us have become numb and apathetic to them. But not the young learners pursuing their Karthavyam Diploma. Students of @HLC International combined facts with their imagination and engaged with the community around them to understand the social problems present there. In the coming month, each will be working on their own book, illustrating the social problem they have identified. We are looking forward to how they develop their stories from concept to completion.
