Power of Seeing: One street element at a time, One street corner at a time, We, together, can change our cities for the better. 'Power of Seeing' facilitates active seeing + documentation of adopted street elements by citizens + organizing information and communities to mobilize CHANGE.

The project provides school children with tools and methodologies to closely observe the lives of the menial service-providers that inhabit their urban environment. Over a length of time (six months to a year) the children observe and enquire into the invisible lifestyles of say a maid, dhobi, cobbler etc., who appears at daybreak and disappears into the unknown at night. This results in photo journals, case histories, narratives and reports that reveal patterns of both social apathy and municipal governance that may be keeping the existence of the poor tenuous, and thus not sustainable!
