Unleashing Potential At Design Museum Dharavi

A presentation concentrated on showcasing Dharavi’s flourishing potential and imaginative ability, Design Museum Dharavi tries to energize social change and development in this urban town.

Started in February 2016 in Dharavi, Mumbai, Design Museum Dharavi is a stage for making, outlining, producing and commercializing a wide range of products and their creators, so they can be recognized by the neighborhood group, the city of Mumbai and across the globe.

Its primary mission is to utilize design as an instrument to social change and development and to challenge the negative view of casual settlements around the globe.

Over the previous years, nearby producers, business visionaries and trendsetters have added to transform Dharavi into an account of accomplishment and self-change.

The Design Museum Dharavi intends to set up new connections amongst Dharavi and remaining city, advancing a more noteworthy trade through a social program that comprises of several workshops and presentations.

Their main goal is to concentrate on Dharavi’s talent and, through design, showcase it as what it truly seems to be: an energizing and promising innovative group, brimming with potential and space for improvement. It is supported by two Dutch social establishments, Creative Industries Fund NL and The Art of Impact.

Amanda Pinatih, co-founder of Design Museum Dharavi says, “Dharavi is recreating itself regularly. This motivated us to make a presentation space that works as a show venue and meeting point for social trade and advancement. The museum travels on a pushcart, like those utilized by local people to convey and offer a wide range of merchandise and items. Entirely everything, from the truck wheels to its metal edge, wooden entryways, plinths, lights, historical center signs and obviously the items displayed, are gladly made in Dharavi.”

Design Museum Dharavi connects with nearby producers in new joint efforts, investigating their imagination and outlining new protests for open displays. The showcased objects reflect new imaginative bearings for these nearby producers, depicting their personality and that of their groups in amazing and unique ways.

The gallery opened with a presentation roused by neighborhood topics and ordinary images, for example, chai, water-holders and sweepers. The second show included a road cricket competition, where lavishly hand woven uniforms and beautiful hand cut wooden bats were shown as well as put to use.

“Our first display generally highlighted artistic pieces in ceramic. We worked with the Chauhan family who were into the pottery business since a few eras and together centered around two focal topics on Dharavi: chai and water holders,” shares co-founder, Jorge Mañes Rubio. New typologies were made around the assortment of chai compartments utilized as a part of Dharavi, while water holders that were for the most part round and massive with a very little scope of improvisation were presented differently by stacking them on top of each other.

The upcoming presentations and workshops are scheduled for the next couple of months in Dharavi (the subjects will be ‘houses’, showcasing models made by genuine temporary workers from Dharavi, and outline/ranks); and a gathering will be held in summer 2016 in Amsterdam, where the outcomes of the Design Museum Dharavi will be displayed and talked about.
