Nokia Set To Launch 'Create To Inspire' Fellowship
27 May 2014
Nokia Create to Inspire is an initiative by Nokia and WWF to create a fellowship program for young people aged 18-25 with the aim to create exciting and innovative campaigns to spread awareness about preserving Delhi’s biodiversity.
Over four months, fellows will learn the aches that plague Delhi’s urban environment and use that knowledge to create something unique in their own art – be it music, photography, filmmaking or dance – any medium that stimulates the senses and gets people to sit up and pay attention.
The aim is to bring in a new perspective to the way we see our cities and a total of 75 fellows along with subject matter experts and creative mentors will aim to do so in the most imaginative ways possible. The application deadline is 10 June; you need to live in Delhi and fit within the specified age group to apply.
Urban biodiversity is an issue that needs to be addressed in our cities but is often ignored, so it’s great that there exists a fellowship composed of young, malleable and excitable minds who can tap into the creativity that is so often suppressed in our schools. This isn’t Nokia’s first fellowship – they’ve collaborated with the likes of Oxfam India in the past and had some stellar outputs. You can find out more on their blog here.
If you care about the city’s biodiversity and environment and have that creative itch in you, this is something you may want to take a look at. The application form and any details needed are all available on their website here.
