THE POWER OF ART To SPARK SOCIAL CHANGE
The PRASAD project is a collaborative street art project developed to empower struggling youth. Meaning “sweet offering,” PRASAD supports local movements to inspire social change in areas of dire need. Various art forms will be used to transform impoverished areas of the country with murals and portraits of famous individuals as well as projects designed to clean polluted areas.
Originally created in Nepal, the project’s hope to inspire the young and disenfranchised of Nepal, most still subject to an archaic caste system, into learning they can still make a difference in their otherwise paralyzed nation. However, the Seeds of Change is currently planning to implement PRASAD movements in our hometown of Denver, Colorado in hopes of inspiring our children at home, and to continue spreading the benefits of this "sweet offering."
PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS THROUGH ARTISTIC INGENUITY
Thus far The Seeds of Change Foundation has funded the start-up of this project and assisted with its application and inspiration. Seeds of Change has held several fundraisers with great success. The project is now aiming to affect local communities across the world, including here in the States to not only inspire our youth, but to enable art education to help communities solve social and environmental crises.
