Taking a leaf from synesthesia, which is the brain's novelty for creating complex and worthy connections, we attempt to tap in to the  social capability of learning and focussing aided through visual mediums of community art and values. The effort is to expatiate the learning pallet beyond school corridors and homes, giving pictures to social determination in public areas.

We encourage citizens to join the initiative,  adopt smiles. Let the world be your canvas and create an occasion for individuals to raise the community morale. We worked at a village chaupad in the town of Samarthala in harayana. After cleaning an open area in the the town center and decorating the walls of the town hall or Community center called a chaupad in native language, we organised a campaign within the local community to give more purpose to the community areas. The designs we painted on the walls focussed on their native pride with natural green pallets and motifs motivating the generations to work together in the balance of their ingenious community to thrive at the multiple fronts of ecology,  lifestyle, career aspirations and economic growth.

The location was previously a semi abandoned building, unkept from marginal use, extending into an open playground and limited plantation. Locals used it for evening gatherings and festival celebrations. We decorated the walls with detailed colourful pictures of birds and motivated locals to bring the children around often and create interactions for them. Several illusions are also created within the artwork to motivate curiosity in that environment. The playground walls depict a calm soft landscape with elements like neat huts,  happy children and day to day village life. We also added mythological figures to initiate story telling and self governance ideas.
