About Artist

In recent times, the exceptionally beautiful and exquisite art form is dying down as more and more people from the community are venturing into other areas of employment and leaving their traditional art form due to the absence of its commercial value. This poses a serious challenge as it could even lead to the extinction of the Warli art activities completely. To arrest this grave issue, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in partnership with L&T Public Charitable Trust (LTPCT) has made serious efforts to create and foster a conducive environment to extensively promote Warli Art activities in the area of Talasari, Palghar, Maharashtra. This would be achieved through working on community cadres, producer groups which would be supported through a range of business development activities and linking the beneficiaries to the potential markets. The target group of this initiative entails 200 Warli artisans with a complete focus on their economic development. ACCESS Development Services with long time experience in developing clusters of artisans in different parts of the country wishes to be associated with the project to develop the value chain in order to ensure sustainable earning opportunities to the Warli artists.
