1. Whose Museum Is It Anyway?:

Understanding the role of audience research in the arts and culture sector

  • When: 6:00 PM (IST), 6 October 2021
  • Where: Online
  • Registration: Click Here

What does the museum-going culture in India look like today? What are people’s perceptions of the ‘museum’ and what it has to offer? How has the pandemic affected engagement with the arts and culture sector in India? 

MAP in collaboration with ReReeti Foundation conducted audience research to hear from people across age demographics about how they engage with arts and culture and what factors act as barriers to engagement. 

To mark the launch of this report, join us for a panel discussion with Tejshvi Jain, Rashmi Dhanwani, Carol Scott and Carolina Artegiani where they highlight the need for more audience research in the arts sector and how this data can be harnessed effectively. They will also touch upon key findings of the report and provide insights into how people perceive museums and what they seek out of encounters with them, in both the physical and digital spheres.

The unique lingo of Bengaluru is a palimpsest that tells us so much about the communities that have inhabited the city. Tracking its evolution, therefore, can help us understand the multicultural landscape of the city today. 

Bengaluru slang is getting renewed attention as the city’s influencers animate these words through their funny, light-hearted reels and posts. Join us for a conversation with content creators Sonu Venugopal, Shreyas Rao, and Sriram Sullia as they discuss the origins of many much loved slang words and phrases, and the role social media has played in popularising Bengaluru lingo.

Stay back for the last 10 minutes of the programme for a fun quiz about the city’s quirks!

This event is in collaboration with the British Council, as part of the Our Shared Cultural Heritage (OSCH) programme.
