The ‘I AM KARACHI’ campaign is a city-wide movement, aiming to support a counter narrative, supporting messages of peace and tolerance, in the currently negative environment. It is an initiative of the Department of Fine Arts, from the Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture.

These are the people who are spreading the love on the walls of Karachi:
