Champions of Change
Artist Arzaan Khambatta and the Jai Vakeel Foundation have curated a visual delight with their art fundraiser, Champions of Change, to celebrate the latter’s completion of 75 years in recognising and stimulating the potential in children with intellectual disability. The duo have designed and created a resin sculpture depicting a seated child, as the students of Jai Vakeel, who no matter what age, retain a child-like purity and innocence. The incredible show, which promotes a spirit of inclusiveness, is not to be missed.
