The St+Art India foundation, which is a non-profit organization working on art projects in public spaces with the aim of making art accessible to a wider audience, has created India's very first open public art district.
The St+Art India foundation, a non-profit organization working on art projects in public spaces to make art accessible to a wider audience, is hosting the amazing St+Art Festival in Delhi. The two month long festival has brought together over 25 street artists from India and across the world to brighten the city with art interventions like murals, installations and more. And with their hard work, these artists have successfully transformed the Lodhi Colony area of Delhi into India’s very first open public art district.

Through the creation of India’s first public art district, we hope to work with the government on more projects to create a sustainable approach towards the Swachh Bharat Mission,” Arjun Bahl, co-founder and festival director of St+Art India told Business Insider.
