For some unique experiences

The India Foundation for the Arts (IFA) is holding an event for parents, educators, homeschoolers as part of ‘MaathuKathe’. Ruchira Das, founder of Think Arts, will talk about experiencing the arts with children.

Here, she shares her experience of homeschooling her two daughters where the arts became an integral part, the contrast between her chartered accountancy job and the arts, and much more.

The event is on November 18, 7 pm at the IFA office, 'Apurva', Ground Floor, No 259, 4th Cross, RMV 2nd Stage, 2nd Block.

Ruchira will talk about her journey in the arts which began as a student, organising concerts and performances. Later on, she quit her job as a chartered accountant to follow her heart and explore the world of arts further.

As she was homeschooling her children, she saw herself sharing experiences and engaging them in artistic activities. She then decided to launch Think Arts to extend these experiences to other children as well.

The evening will also be interspersed with interesting tales from her travels, including a five-week trip this summer across festivals in Europe - Ruhrtriennale in Germany, Edinburgh festival in the UK, Ibsen festival in Norway and a few others where she wrote a blog to share her experiences with her children. She will also speak about her latest project which invites children to create an installation of their own.
