At Trinayani, for the cause of disability awareness we do not restrict ourselves only to exploring the media or conducting workshops. We have tried never to miss an opportunity to participate in or organize events which would help us further our cause. In doing so, we have been a part of several events which cannot be strictly labeled or categorized into neat boxes. In this page, we have gathered together some such events with the hope of adding to it in the future.
Our NGO Trinayani participated in the Kalaghoda Festival 2016.
Trinayani commissioned the ‘Let’s Talk’ sculpture, a product of our first National Inclusive Visual Arts Workshop Triumph Together in association with Khoj International, in Kolkata .The sculpture (32 inches high, 22 inches wide and 21 and half inches deep) created in Fibre Glass has been crafted by Shri Hasmukh K.
