Sohini Chakraborty – Dance for Empowering Revolution

Sohini Chakraborty drums with two other people

Sohini Chakraborty has been helping sex-trafficking survivors using dance movement therapy (DMT) through the nonprofit Kolkata Sanved, an organization she founded in 2004. DMT allows enables survivors to recover from the trauma they have experienced through the medium of the body.

“I feel that any creative expression, not only dance, can bring big change. If you look at history, creativity is really, really powerful. It can change society’s attitude. It’s a tool for recovery, healing, self-expression and reintegration.” (Vital Voices)


Artists as Activists is part of an ongoing curiosity I pursue through my email newsletter, Making Art in a Time of Rage.
