Program Description:
Srijanalaya is a nonprofit, nongovernmental organization established to create safe spaces for learning through the arts and that imagines a Nepal where every child has the tools and support necessary to express their thoughts and to be heard. Srijanalaya comes from the words srijana [v], meaning to create/imagine and alaya [n], a home or space. Srijanalaya has a growing community of artists and educators in Nepal who offer creative mediums as an alternative approach to rote-learning and static textbooks. The organization engages children and communities in visual, performing, and language arts workshops, exhibitions, and performances during which they consciously incorporate diverse, indigenous, and local art forms and materials as much as possible. The organization looks to create spaces both inside and outside of schools where imagination and expression of self are encouraged amidst infinite possibilities. Thoughtful planning, organization of interdisciplinary collaborations, and assessment of the relevance of each project are but few of the tasks that Srijanalaya takes on in order to put together such a wonderful and unique program.

Intern Responsibilities: IIP interns will contribute to the art education section of Srijanalaya. These responsibilities will include contributions to a strategy to reach out to local communities and children to assist in the development of a children's biennial in tandem with the Kathmandu Triennale. This strategy will also include taking art making experiences to rural communities and using art therapy in areas still recovering from the earthquake/floods.

Requirements: IIP candidates with interests in arts, education, communications, and marketing are encouraged to apply. Experience in arts education and/or outreach initiatives would be an asset.
