St+art Mumbai : Dharavi

The St+art festival goes to the former 'largest slum cluster of South Asia'

Rainbow Crew | DharaviSt+art India

Dharavi is a massive suburb of Mumbai which houses one of the largest slums in the world. Yet most of the locals here run their own form of small enterprises to get by. It is fair to say it is a place of high contrasts. Here, the Rainbow crew painted a rainbow for the people of Dharavi.

The St+art festival had organised a stencil cutting workshop in centre run by a local NGO. However, as there is also a very active hip-hop and b-boying culture in Dharavi, the workshop partly turned into a skill showcase.
