|:||This document captures the project proposal for a public art programme organised by SAHMAT, titled 'Art on the Move'. The programme was conceptualised by artist Vivan Sundaram and held in 2001 across various venues in New Delhi. Events comprised of a series of workshops, public art exhibitions, and panel discussions.
SAHMAT was founded in 1989 after the spontaneous anger generated by Safdar Hashmi’s murder on January 1,1989. The organisation grew into a resolve to resist the forces threatening the essentially pluralist and democratic spirit of creative expression in India. Writers, painters, scholars, poets, architects, photographers, designers, cultural activists and media persons formed the Safdar Hashmi Memorial Trust/ Committee within weeks of Safdar Hashmi’s death. From its inception SAHMAT has been a platform with a shared perspective, and has welcomed the distinctive creativities of those who have been part of its activities. SAHMAT has promoted the secular and pluralist culture and traditions of the sub-continent through concerts, seminars, workshops, and exhibitions in different parts of the country, and has mounted several protest actions in support of freedom of expression.
