Volunteer with us at Shanti Bhavan!

This Spring, we are sending a team of 12 Volunteer Teaching Artists to Shanti Bhavan Children’s Project in Southern India to deliver a multi-week arts camp that focuses on Music, Filmmaking, Dance, Visual Art, Storytelling, and Musical Theatre!

Each May, ASTEP Volunteer Teaching Artists travel to Shanti Bhavan Children’s project, a residential school for children in India’s lowest castes leading art-based classes and activities with students from 4th to 12th grade. The camp is full of community building activities, focusing on enhancing personal development and leadership skills. Camp activities range from shadow puppet shows of Shakespeare to face painting…and everything in between!  

ASTEP Arts Camp at Shanti Bhavan works to empower students to build life skills, share and experience various art forms and activities, and creating lifelong memories that will stay with them as they transition through life!
