[Important Announcement to all the Applicants of our Annual IE Course (dated May 05, 2020):

The Covid-19 induced lock-down has now been extended further till 18th May, with some relaxation, but still a large number of areas are under great threat. In order to contain the threat and to get back to a semblance of normalcy, all of us have to avoid any possible way of coming under the influence of the virus. We have to ensure this in the midst of several responsibilities as taking care of the security and safety of our family members, our dependents etc. Considering all this, we have decided to suspend this year’s summer Workshop on ‘Art in Education’, scheduled to be held from 19 to 22 May 2020.

Those who have applied for this year’s Workshop will be considered and given preference during our next year’s Workshop.

Until then stay safe: Outwardly, follow the recommended safety procedures, and inwardly by drawing out the strength & power inherent within all of us to conquer this virus. – Priti, Workshop Co-ordinator.]


SAFIER has been conducting annual workshops on Integral Education for more than 33 years. This year, additionally, an intensive workshop on ‘Art in Education - Approaches and Practice’ from 19-22 May 2020 has been announced for primary level teachers & educationists, who have already participated in SAFIER’s basic course in Integral Education. If you have not done this course, click here for the full details of the Basic Course.

A team of experienced resource persons who are practicing artists, art teachers and aspirants of Integral Education will facilitate the workshop.
