“Freedom Now”–Focuses on Art exchange & Exhibit, Performing Arts and other Initiatives to mobilize public opinion in our fight against sex trafficking and sexual exploitation of women and children.
Guria India, through art exchange & exhibit, is partnering with schools and organizations across the world to create a tidal wave of awareness, empowerment, creativity, and activism. The students learn about human trafficking, create art about trafficking and exchange their art with each other.
The performing arts is a series for awareness and fundraising to fight sex trafficking & child sexual exploitation in North India. The concerts began in 1995 only for the women in the red-light areas to spread awareness, save the dying art form, give dignity to the women singers and provide alternate livelihood options. Further it also included the local folk artists from the marginalized & excluded sections of the society also. Later in the next stage it saw performances from music maestros at various prestigious theatres such as Bharat Bhavan (Bhopal); Sri Ram Centre for Art and Culture (Delhi); Teen Murti Bhavan (New Delhi), Bhatkande Music Institute (Lucknow), Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan (Institute of Indian Arts and Culture) London and the World Social Forum (Mumbai).
