Slam Out Loud
Slam out Loud is an organisation that uses art forms such as poetry, drama, storytelling, and visual arts to develop creative confidence skills among disadvantaged children in the slums of New Delhi and Mumbai. Over a five-year period, professional artists conduct a program of art techniques and their use in an academic context to awaken children. The same program is also used to train other teacher-facilitators who can then take Slam Out Loud programs to more schools across New Delhi and Mumbai. Ms. Jigyasa Labroo and her colleague Mr. Gaurav Singh are leading this innovative organisation.
