Jodhpur RIFF' 2013 - Folk artists
In its endeavour to empower weaker section of society by creating awareness in them about rights available to them under law and imparting necessary knowledge to them for protecting their rights, LIBRA INDIA in association with Jodhpur RIFF organized a workshop for about 200 folk artists of Rajasthan who had participated in the Jodhpur RIFF-2012. LIBRA INDIA prepared a bi-lingual Introductory Legal Guide - "AAPRO HUNAR AAPRO HAQ or YOUR TALENT YOUR RIGHTS" covering significant laws such as the Indian Contract Act, 1872, Copyright and Royalty, Income Tax Act, 1961 and Free Legal Aid. With committed support from Mr. Divya Bhatia, Festival Director of Jodhpur RIFF, LIBRA INDIA successfully staged an interactive session with the folk artists during the JODHPUR - RIFF ' 2012. The support of all the trustees and members of Executive Committee is commendable and the feedback of the folk artists was overwhelming, inspiring LIBRA INDIA to take this initiative to next level.
