Interaktion genom kultur (Swedish)
During my visit in the pottery area Kumbhar Wada in Dharavi, I got conscious about how isolated the older uneducated people in the families are from their children’s education. The Kumbhar Wada area itself is very isolated from the rest of Dharavi and many inhabitants almost never leave this area.
School children from different parts of Dharavi meet together in the schools around Default site. This project is about getting the people of Dharavi together around a common interest. In culture activities as theatre, dance and music both educated and uneducated inhabitants can take part.
Default site is an open ground in the center of Dharavi and a lot of Dharavi’s children goes in the schools that surround the site. On the site a culture house will welcome the schools to educate in cultural activities as a compliment to the basic education.
An outdoor theatre and some parts of the culture house will be open for public so the pupils get the oppportunity to show what they have learned in cultural education. The outdoor theater area will work both as a theatre and as a festival area for dance and music. With the public area the project will include families and friends to the students and people in different ages can take part in the cultural activities on default site.
