Vedanthangal’s Artivism

In Chennai, the Vedanthangal Bird Sanctuary faces a great threat and a large chunk of this bird paradise could be lost forever, due to the environmentally destructive development. In order to raise awareness about this, Christwood students, as part of The Ecology Project, contributed to the art drive for Vedanthangal and joined hundreds of others across the city, to express their concern and the need to preserve Vedanthangal.

The artwork of some of our senior students appeared in news articles, which covered the story. Our students were also interviewed by the reporters and strongly expressed their views. This whole experience has been incredible for the children as they not only understood the power of art and enjoyed the thrill of seeing their work published, but it also reminded them of learning to speak up for Nature and all her creatures.
