Art has always fed the soul,
But what if it can feed the hungry too?
1 million food plates.
In 2019, the earliest team members, hunched around a table by dusk-light, coined the name ‘The Plated Project’.
Our adversary? Hunger. Our crusader? Art.
But how can art confront a global issue?
Working with artists, we re-imagine everyday objects into functional
works of art that drive awareness & sponsor meals for the vulnerable.
To establish a sustainable, for-profit business model that gives back.
Every art-infused piece is conceptualised with immersive storytelling and our business model ensures, each product generates revenue for its creator.
It’s not a race, it’s a marathon!
And here’s a peek into who has joined us along the way!
Talk of the town
Layered and intricate, these artworks are on an
unusual medium to make a point. Digitally printed on ceramic wall plates, they trace stories…more than just putting food on the plate in the form of donations,
their aim was to also start a conversation around
the issue of hunger.
The tagline is simple: “Buy a plate, fill a plate.” Every month, Chitresh Sinha and his team at The Plated Project, in Mumbai, commission artists to create work that will fit within the circle of a dinner plate. Buying just one of their attractive, brightly coloured plates with designs by artists such as Malika Favre and Suket Dhir, equals 10 meals donated.
What started as an Instagram handle with three followers, has now become a community of over 40,000 followers. The project has received recognition from global media platforms like The Guardian and New York Times, and the team was invited to showcase their work at Art Basel, Hong Kong, one of the biggest art fairs in the world.
For ‘A Plate Full of Hope,' The Plated Project has collaborated with 20 prominent international artists such as Pavan Rajurkar, who was featured in Lürzer's Archive's 200 Best Illustrators worldwide, Hana Augustine from Indonesia, who's an AGDA Award of Excellence awardee.
