‘’City dreams - Dream City’’ – seeks to link the youth into an awareness of the environmental issues and their concerns. Giving the young minds a scope to think and create a beautiful city “out of waste”. And their dreams and fantasies of their future will come true- as a first step at our workshop.
The workshop series from 22nd June to the 1st of July will see the building of a cityscape that culminates in an installation of the art work on the 1st of July in the Culture Pavilion at the Mela on the Palace Grounds.
