Bihar is known as the poorest state in Northeast India. Indian and Japanese artists spend around 20 days there at the Niranjana School in Sujata Village, Bodh-Gaya, and produce Wall Art using the walls of the school building as canvas. In the process, the artists spend time with children there and conduct workshops for them.
The initiative aims to help resolve various issues confronting villages in India such as those regarding poverty, education, and employment through cultural and artistic exchange. The fruits of the effort have already started to emerge little by little, particularly through the creation of employment and educational opportunities, thereby attracting interest in the region from neighboring areas.
The Wall Art Festival 2012 exhibition introduces the initiative via photos and video. The objective of the exhibition is to make as many people as possible aware of how the children and villagers of Bihar live.
