Founded in 2016 by Bhamini Shree, Pouli is an art-based organization that believes in bringing art to our everyday life through conversations, journaling, paintings, drawing books, art Merch, webinars, self-healing art practices, folk art preservation and adaptation, livelihood generation and more. We have also been actively involved in uplifting the gender and sexual minorities in the community. We have collaborated with marginalized communities in different forms for the same. Some of our painting series also revolves around the suggested vulnerability.

Based out of Hyderabad, Bhamini Shree is the founder of Pouli, a visual artist, art teacher, and writer. She has worked on various art forms, including various Indian folk art like Madhubani, Warli, Mandalas, and Expressionism. She has taught over 50,000 patrons (8 to 70 years of age) from around the globe, including representing India in Egypt for Madhubani Painting. She also works in collaboration with organizations and educational institutions for workshops on well-being, increasing focus and concentration through art.
She has curated and showcased many works in various art exhibitions across the country. She also serves as the board of directors at an LGBTQIIA+-based NGO called Mobbera Foundation. A lot of her works revolve around the depth and layers of gender, fragility, and mental health, and she particularly brings out the contrast of vulnerability and strength of human emotions through vivid colors, textures, shapes, and concepts. 

Pouli and Bhamini’s work is well recognized and has been covered (as artists) in various print media, magazines, news channels, and digital media over the years. 

Risks and Challenges
Like all products, this product also comes with risks and challenges. One of the biggest challenges is that the campaign does not succeed, and the backer might lose their money. However, if the fundraising goal is met, the reward will be shipped to the backers’ address.

Challenges might also emerge during production and logistics, leading to untimely delivery and other issues.

The crowdfunding platform is aware of such risks and has several mitigation measures in place. Each campaign is awarded a ‘campaign success probability score,’ which indicates its success rate. Furthermore, the platform vets and verifies all campaigns thoroughly before launching them. The entire process involves understanding the scale and impact of the campaign, which further helps determine its success.

Reward-based campaigns
Reward-based crowdfunding allows backers to gain a reward for supporting a project. It incentivizes backers to access the crowdfunded product or other goodies and merchandise early. There are risks involved with backing a project but it can also be a rewarding attempt. The backers get to support a project that they feel passionately about and in doing so, they also fuel innovation and growth. Ultimately, it is rewarding for both parties concerned; creators receive backing and support, whereas, for backers, it means supporting a project they are passionate about and earning rewards.


Which type of campaign is this?
This campaign is a “Keep it all” campaign. Under the ‘keep it all’ framework, the campaigners can keep all the money raised on their fundraiser, irrespective of whether the goal is reached.

What are the risks involved in a reward-based campaign?
You are supporting a crowd-funded campaign to bring to life a creative project. As with supporting any creative endeavor, there is a risk that the project may not be successful. You will bear this risk as a backer and supporter of this creative campaign. CrowdHive is not responsible for reward fulfillment or the success of any project.

However, we have assigned a “Campaign Success Probability Score” to help you assess the success probability of each campaign. A higher score equates to a higher possibility for success and lower risk. This campaign has been assigned a campaign success probability score of 80.

What is a Campaign Success Probability Score?
A campaign success probability score indicates the success rate for delivering the rewards to backers by every campaigner.

  • A score of 60 and above indicates that the campaign has higher risks and a medium success rate associated with it.
  • A score of 70 and above indicates that the campaign has a medium success rate in fulfilling almost all of its pledges.
  • A score of 80 and above indicates that the campaign has a high success rate of fulfilling all its pledges.
