Problem statement

  • People don’t usually remove the time to beautify their homes/walls and don’t give art the importance it deserves.
  • In their actively engaged lives, people forget to concentrate on art which can bring about a positive change in their lifestyle.

Identified objectives

  • To give a touch of art to not only Delhi but the entire country and make it a better place to live in.
  • Build re-call for the brand with #DonateAWall series and build anticipation for the next city and series.
  • To create awareness and increase sales through this campaign.
  • To document the 3 donated walls and their transformation on videos and digitally promote the same.
  • To spread the word about this initiative and make interesting content around it.
  • To cover all the 3 stories about these winners and their inspiration behind their donation.
  • Highlight Asian Paints as a brand that helped the project to turn this into a reality.

Strategy/ Execution

We created a micro site to call for entries –

Participants had to fill in their basic details along with giving reasons as to why should they be chosen. After rigorous scanning and review, 3 entries were shortlisted who got their walls/house done up by St+Art artists.

This entire journey was video recorded.
