November 6, 2019: India’s Minister of State for Home Affairs G Kishan Reddy inaugurated the Not Just Art, Art Gallery at UNESCO Cluster House, Chankyapuri, Delhi. The Art Gallery had visual art done by artists with disability who came from all across India to showcase their amazing talent with color and form.

The Award aims to celebrate the artistic abilities of persons with disability, who have hitherto remained a largely unrecognized talent pool. Their art has been created by overcoming various challenges. It also helps them to express in colour what they cannot express in words and release their emotions. Hence Not Just Art.

The artists were awarded with a cash prize of Rs. 50,000, a trophy and a certificate.
