The project aims at introducing culture to children from 4-7 years who are not in touch with their native culture or who have migrated from their hometown. The idea is it promote, foster and propagate Rajasthani culture through storytelling as it helps in enhancing active imagination and bringing in curiosity about their own roots. Giving them a tacit experience about Rajasthan by imitating certain cultural activities and taking them to a journey of fun, play and learn.
This project is an attempt for designing a platform, which bridges the gap between children and there native culture. The challenge involved designing an interactive public space. This project involved study of space, interactions, sound, children behavior, architecture, history, stories, culture etc.
Inspired from Kaavad, a traditional storytelling tool from Rajasthan, the installation is designed to transmit the culture hymn to young children. The project allows user you to experience different aspects of the tangible and the intangible culture of Rajasthan. Non-sequential stories, artifacts and activities makes the
installation participative, playful and interesting.
