We are a collective of Madhubani Painters artists living in Rajnagar block of Madhubani district. Ours is a story of empowerment and social inclusion through our traditional art. We commenced our journey in 2011 when we participated in an action research on professionalizing traditional art skills undertaken by www.banglanatak.com with support of the Planning Commission of India. We are from Simri, Satghara, Ranti and Chichri. We have formed this artists’ cluster Madhurekha to run the business. Our initiative is supported by US Department of State.
