Hano (he/they), has extensively worked with adolescents and the youth over the past 7 years through community-based organisations across India using psychosocial modes of interventions Having completed his master's degree in Development from Azim Premji University in Bengaluru, his focus has been anchored around the intersection of education, gender and mental health. Besides following a training course in Arts-Based Therapy, he has used forms of art as an intervention approach towards community and individual healing that rivet around the ideas of transformative justice. Beyond work, Hano is passionate about coffee brewing and, masquerading like a connoisseur, believes he can serve you the best-iced coffee there is. If he is not working or driving a car, he can be found in cafes talking about politics and matters of social justice. Apart from materialising his overambitious and passionate travel plans, Hano finds it equally difficult to complete reading the shelves full of unfinished books that he has been hoarding since forever.
