“Revive Mumbai” is a Brandeis student-run organization that was formed in the wake of the November 2008 terrorist attacks. Several students thought the best response to such a horrific event were projects that supported coexistence and peace, especially among underprivileged youth. The students began a scholarship fund named in honor of Rabbi Holtzberg and his wife, as well as conceived a summer internship program for Brandeis students in Mumbai.

These next few slides highlight the work of the summer program, where Brandeis students worked at the Parivartan School in partnership with the Experimental Theater Foundation. The goal was to help teach the children methods of expression and produce an original street play with the students as “actors.” Brandeis students kept a blog of their work, and the following slides feature excerpts from the blog.
