ABOUT

‘Democracy Wallʼ takes the idea of free speech and meaningful engagement with governance, politics and society to Indiaʼs most vibrant campuses. It offers young and aware Indians a platform to express their thoughts and aspirations: in voice, prose, verse, painting or music. It brings the top-of-the-mind concerns of millennials to the fore, stimulating substantial conversations. As a forum for open expression and healthy questioning of established ideas and notions, ‘Democracy Wallʼ aims to help the next generation of Indians emerge as involved citizens.
What is Democracy Wall?

The first edition of Democracy Wall will be held at Amity University, Noida, on 30 January 2018. For more details : http://theprint.in/democracy-wall
