M.A.P. Mobile Artistic Platform: Mobile Artists’ Residency

Culture Events


Project Period:
15 Oct 10 - 15 Nov 10
Bangalore (India)


M.A.P. was a multi-disciplinary travelling residency where participating artists worked and travelled on an experimental journey to different locations in South India from October to November 2010. Together, they explored issues relating to sustainable tourism, cross-cultural exchanges, community-based practices and notions of hospitality.

The programme kicked off in Bangalore at local independent arts space 1Shanthi Road which was followed by a series of orientation workshops in Kolar. The group then took to the road over the next 17 days. The first stop was at Nila River, in Kerala state, known for its sustainable tourism and natural heritage. The second location was at Anegundi, in the state of Karnataka, where the participants focused their work on local life and food culture. The artists converged again in Bangalore at the end of the residency, where they presented their findings over a two-day session of public talks, screenings, and performances.

The M.A.P. project will be showcased to both Indian and international audiences through a new website which will catalogue the conversations between the artists and the local communities, as well as their projects through podcasts, a visual archive and video interviews.
