Shweta Bhattad

Shweta is the founder-member of the Gram Art Project, which is a collective of 150 farmers, artists, women, students, youth, and makers from across eight villages in the Paradsinga area. They practice agroecology on 16 acres of land while embedding socially engaged art in their daily rhythm and community life. This process of inquiry, inspiration, ideation, design, and implementation has enabled the Collective to create alternative knowledge, innovative practices, and cultures of farming and entrepreneurship. It has also enabled Shweta and her team to embed performance art that addresses the intersectional loss of agricultural and ecological biodiversity and the depletion of commons such as water bodies and forests, further layered with the growing burdens and labor and violence on women and their bodies.
