Samatva As An Idea Towards Development

We believe in identifying and overcoming the barriers amongst social practisioners and the problems in the implementation of any design project.

We intend to use design as a tool for community and social development projects, specially for rural and semi-urban communities.

Design, sustainability and development are at the core of Samatva's guiding principles. To implement design for social development is our vision. We identify barriers faced by social practitioners in implementing any project in the field of arts, crafts, spaces, streets, innovation and rural entrepreneurship. We help in finding solutions to community problems using a human-centric approach by keeping both project requirement and beneficiaries in mind. We also document culture-laden stories around us.

Our Approach

We facilitate social development with our due intelligence in design through implementation, documentation, impact assessment, scaling-up of a project using the Theory of Change process in the fields of arts, crafts, spaces, streets, innovation and rural entrepreneurship.

We love jamming

We meet up monthly at our studio with like-minded designers, environmentalists, activists, ideators, creative artists, basically anybody with the heart for social development.

Every jam addresses one identified local problem and we brainstorm together.
