Rural Development Foundation is hosting an exhibition of Photo Documentation of Lambada Lifestyle & Culture, at the State Gallery of Fine Arts. The exhibition is on from 13th to 15th November, from 11am to 7pm everyday.

This project is sponsored by the Rubin Foundation, USA, through the India Rural Development Fund (IRDF), USA. The project was started in June 2008, when The Shelly and Donald Rubin Foundation (New York), a trust with an interest in the arts of native cultures and their preservation, gave a grant to the IRDF in order to initiate some action to preserve the arts and culture of the Lambada tribes.

The IRDF then conceived a project to document the Lambada culture and lifestyle through photography, and assigned this task to the Rural Development Foundation, Hyderabad. The photo documentation was carried out by the children of the RDF School from Kalleda (Warangal District), and that is what this exhibition showcases.

The children have worked with the awareness that the Lambadas are no longer distinctively dressed, and that their lifestyle is fast integrating into mainstream society, including getting their children educated and changing the way they build their houses. Some of the participants of the project were children of the Lambadas. The photographs on display are available for Rs. 5,000, and the proceeds of the sale will contribute to more such creative projects for the children of the RDF School.

Rural Development Foundation (RDF) is a non-profit public society working in rural areas in the field of education. It was started in May 1996, as a family initiative, and is now governed by an independent board of directors that includes public servants and citizens. Starting with one school with 60 children in 1996, RDF now runs 5 schools and one junior college, with more than 1500 students and 100 staff.
