A FLOWER CHILD
‘A Flower Child’ is a platform for Visual Arts, Children’s Books and Storytelling founded by Neha Khaitan.
A ‘flower child’ symbolizes hippies and it originated in 1960s in San Francisco during the countercultural movement (Summer of Love). Then, the ‘flower children’ wore and distributed flowers or floral themed decorations to spread the ideals of universal belonging, peace, love and propagate lifestyles alternative to the traditional. ‘A Flower Child’ is an adaptation of this ideology of the “flower children” and it strives to spread its motto – Expressing one’s self using words, actions, performing arts, fine arts and other forms does great deal of good to everybody involved.
