It’s summertime and the living is easy, and we hope you are having tons of fun in the hot sun!! Are you wondering what you are going to do once it’s time to hang up the flip-flops and swimsuits? Do you know what your post-Labor Day plans are? Well, we’ve got the answer for you. Put away the white pants and Hawaiian shirts and head to Southern India with ASTEP!
This September, ASTEP is sending a team of Volunteer Teaching Artists to Shanti Bhavan Children’s Project in India to deliver a week-long arts camp that focuses on music, theatre, dance, and visual art. Together, ASTEP and Shanti Bhavan teach students that their voices matter, that their ideas have value, and that they are capable of transforming India and their communities. By bringing the arts to these children from India’s lowest castes, ASTEP provides students with the opportunity to develop their social and emotional skills and to imagine a world where anything is possible. All volunteers receive room and board and live on campus with the children.
Dates: September 6 – September 19, 2016
Application deadline: July 18, 2016
Location: Shanti Bhavan Children’s Project near Bangalore, India
Who: All artists! We need a diverse team and hope that you are a part of it!
