India’s first community living space and research centre for the differently–abled, which will be funded by the proceeds of an ongoing two-day exhibition, will be coming up soon at Khandpe, Karjat on a 12.5-acre site

The exhibition ‘Art Trisomy 21’ was inaugurated by Amruta Fadnavis, wife of chief minister Devendra Fadnavis on Wednesday and she said that the need of the hour was to support the children and provide them dignity. The exhibition featuring works of differently-abled young adults suffering from Down syndrome and other disorders is being held at Coomarswami Hall in South Mumbai. After inaugurating the exhibition, Ms Fadnavis said, “I am privileged to be part of this special exhibition. The artworks presented are truly amazing and no less than professional work.”

 

Neha Pradhan, a young artist with Down syndrome, said, “I like to paint my thoughts on the canvas as it helps me express myself better.”

The exhibition has been organised to mark the completion of 25 years of Om Creations Trust, which had conceptualised the event.
