The target areas were surveyed and found to have very low awareness of TPDDL’s CSR efforts. A campaign was designed, called ‘Haath Badata, Haath Bantata, Hamesha Aapka Saath Nibhata’ for TPDDL. Along with PR efforts by TPDDL, Be.artsy conducted nukkad nataks to create awareness of the various initiatives by TPDDL. A post-play survey was done, and the analysis of the results reported to TPDDL. These include high appreciation of the novel communication method, and a willingness to participate in the CSR projects.
200 nukkad natak were conducted in 217 JJ clusters in North and North- West Delhi. Almost 1000 people were surveyed in the post-play survey. 97% found the nukkad natak format entertaining and educational, and 95% said they would use the information and spread it further. Knowledge levels improved 11%.

UN Task Team on Youth (UNFPA and UNV, lead agencies), Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports, and Rajiv Gandhi National Institute of Youth Development.
Interest was developed among college and school youth in the Delhi-NCR region by Be.artsy, using posters, social media and an email campaign. Youth were invited to a day-long program, including a fun quiz, statement making by youth (read out to the dignitaries by young people), group discussion, nukkad natak, an expert panel discussion, and speeches by dignitaries. Thanks to innovative planning by Be.artsy, the audience was kept fully engaged at all times, and mixing of school and college teams resulted in ‘new friends’.
332 pre-registrations were received and 280 youth attended (81% vs a norm of 35-50%), against a target of 70. “I have never seen the students so involved in a group discussion,” said an impressed teacher from Laxman Public School. “The quiz was informative, and the humour in between was very good,” said an excited student from Maharaja Agrasen School.

Data has been known to sing to Jyoti’s left brain, and she claims to decipher the words as well. Her right brain usually draws infographics, but it often sneaks out and tells hair-raising veteran’s tales of strategy, projects, quality, research and operations from almost 3 decades in the corporate world. Beware of her when she starts giving ‘funde’ on any and every topic in the cosmos.
Mild-mannered Shilpa is the Peter Parker of infographics at Be.artsy. Whenever her spider-sense tingles, she leaps over tall buildings and spins a web of high art and design that grabs all viewers. Mostly, she is found juggling our icons and other images and somehow fitting all human endeavours into our company colours. Her working hours make perfect sense in the GMT timezone.
