Gururaj L: Linking classroom learning to the folk arts

In 2013 we made four grants under the Arts Education programme to support projects by teachers trained under our Kali-Kalisu initiative, that explore the potential of regional art forms and practices to sensitise the school and community about local issues, and to build networks of common artistic interests.Gururaj L is one of the recipients of these grants. For his project he wanted to empower the students of a government school in the village of Gudadoor in Koppal District, Karnataka, to creatively link their process of learning in the classroom with the local folk-art traditions that they are immersed in. This approach to classroom pedagogy seeks to combat the corrosive influence of popular culture on the ethos of the school.
