Maskbook is off to a new location and going where air pollution hits the hardest... Over the course of 2 weeks, Maskbook will be taking a cross-country trip in India with an exciting program of five workshops throughout New Delhi and Bengaluru, in collaboration with major players in the fields of art, social entrepreneurship and environment: Jaaga, Swechha and Jagriti Yatra.
The Maskbook workshop could not come at a better time. New Delhi has been in the headlines of every major news publication across the globe because of its record high levels of air pollution. The toxic conditions in the capital city led the Indian Medical Association to declare a public health emergency. Other Indian cities are also at risk — out of the world’s 20 most polluted cities, half of them are located in India!
As a participatory, artistic and civil action project on health, air pollution and global warming, Maskbook's India workshop series will bring together over 1,000 participants and "upcycle" more than 25 kg of waste.
