I Stand For India

I recently volunteered to take a tour around Dharavi, One of the largest slum in the world and portray the small scale industries around in a positive light and also explain how Reality Gives helps as an NGO to empower people in the area with better educational facilities and employment schemes. For an initiative called india starts with I. 
Reality Gives is the sister organisation of ethically run tour company, Reality Tours & Travel. Reality Tours was created in 2005 by Krishna Pujari and Chris Way, with the main objective to show the positive side of slums and to break down negative stereotypes about its residents, and Dharavi in particular. 
After discussing the community's needs with its residents, in 2007 Reality Tours set up a Community Centre in Dharavi to provide English and computer classes, using tour revenues and as Reality Tours grew, the founders decided to expand on their social work. In August 2009, the NGO Reality Gives was born. 
Reality Gives was formed with the view of getting involved in education, a focus driven through consultation with residents of Dharavi, who felt this was the area where they most needed help. The vision and mission statement hence evolved from that as well as from our experiences meeting people and organisations in the education sector.

Since it's inception Reality has worked close with established and esteemed organisations to ensure the opportunities it provides are of the highest standard, which has seen educational non-profit Muktangan and organisational development consultant ATMA providing vital support.

Adidas Originals Gazelle Launch I Steal From History

adidas Originals Gazelle : The Concept

Being relevant is what sparks the need to be creative. Gazelle, another iconic sneaker from the house of adidas Originals will make some serious noise this fall-winter. Having been stood the test of time by being constantly re-appropriated, Gazelle celebrates the truth that creativity rarely occurs in a vacuum, but often ends up borrowing and adapting itself to a pre-existing something.

 

Re-Appropriation Art : What's that?

Re-Appropriation is using an already available palette, an already existing piece of art perhaps, that is dated - and to take that piece, and play with it visually and conceptually, in order to 're-appropriate' it to a contemporary context. Popularly confused with stealing - our idea is to change the purpose of the artwork, and in that process, creating something relevant to today. 

For Gazelle, we got a few young connoisseurs together and shot them in iconic clothing from past decades starting from the 1960's to 2000's. However, they will be sporting the Gazelle sneakers. These photographs are then used by 5 artists in each city to re-appropriate and re-use in their own style (Digitally or by hand). All artworks will be displayed at adidas Originals stores in Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore
