Learn about Mumbai directly from children who live there!

Want some inspiration in presenting modern, urban India in a child friendly way? This popular workshop uses photos and video shot by LDEC staff and includes their personal stories of visiting India. The videos contain interviews with children from a range of different backgrounds living in Mumbai, which relate to children's own experiences in the UK. The session culminates by creating a beautiful Indian icon from re-used materials.
