It was an introductory meeting to create a platform where all the stakeholders could interact. Christi introduced the Art in Transit project, and took everyone around the station to show the existing artwork. The well diggers enthusiastically participated in all discussions and shared their experience working in the field, they also sketched some of their entrepreneurial practices and pinpointed their area of work on a map. This is the first of many meetings to follow, to better understand the work and experience of the Mannu Vaddars.
