Drawing Mumbai was one of the three workshops conducted as a part of ICHH, hosted by Rizvi College of Architecture. Held for around 20 students, it was conducted at our People Place Project studio in Juhu. The two intensive days for these 1st year students encompassed going around 5 locations in Mumbai armed with a quote on a postcard. There task, like a treasure hunt, was to find a visual frame that metaphorically represented the quote. Quotes were beautifully illustrated by the students the next day in black and white and a single color. Having created over 55 postcards, the workshop and the postcards opened up new ways of looking at Mumbai.
We asked the people to bring us an anthology of graphics that tells us about the stories about urban concerns, stories that inspire you, stories that you think are something that everyone needs to know through graphics.
Let's build a kinder world with stories
Mumbai, kolkata, ahmedabad
Don’t we all love a good story? We have stories all around us- in the cities we live and the places we make... Aren't we all a part of this story?
When was the last time you paused and listened to these stories around you? The stories of the city... The stories of you and me...
