Fire and Ice Exhibition
‘Fire & Ice’ - an art exhibition primarily focussing on road safety was presented by the students of DPS international school at Select Citywalk, Saket from October 10-12, 2017. The exhibition was curated by Ms. Manu Dosaj, founder of Gallerie Alternative. Appropriately titled as ‘Fire & Ice’, the ‘fire’ of angst that burns due to gross negligence on the road needs the ‘ice’ of attention to safeguard valuable life, was the core thought process of the DPSI students who were behind this whole event and painted their thinking process with utmost clarity.
The artworks showcased ‘fatal five’ behaviours that cause road trauma: speeding, drink and drug driving, not wearing seatbelts, fatigue and driving while distracted seems to have been ignored by all stakeholders. Prominent personalities who stood for the same cause and motivated the children were Professor Geeta Singh, Director Center for Professional Development in Higher Education, Ms Ambika Pillai, Ms Ina Puri, Ms Devyani Jaipuria, Pro Vice Chairperson DPS International Gurgaon, Ms Anu Bajaj. Mr Swaraj Das and many others.
