Imagination is Power
For a period of two years starting from 2014, Graphic People partnered with Spreeha Bangladesh to launch the “Imagination is Power” project, a CSR initiative to empower urban slum children via expression through art and crafts, music, photography and graphic designing. The children learnt how to think out of the box and go beyond boundaries of innovation using their very imaginations to implement various empowerment projects.
