The Foundation for Indian Contemporary Art (FICA) invites you to 'Sighting Sound: A project display by FICA Club'. The FICA Club is a group of students from Deepalaya School, who along with their facilitator Sreejata Roy, have been exploring non-curriculum based topics by using innovative and creative methods. Over the past few months the Club has been exploring the theme of sound in everyday life. The young members of the group have been discussing their experiences of sounds and their ideas about sound, and have translated these discussions into visual and performative work.
On 15 May, the FICA Club will present some of their work through visuals and mimes to their peers, parents and teachers.
