Situated in the heart of Bengaluru, India, MAP’s building will include art galleries, an auditorium, an art and research library, an education centre, a specialised research and conservation facility, as well as a terrace cafe.
The museum will be a space for ideas and conversations that are initiated through its collection, enabling us to engage with audiences in multiple ways. MAP seeks to inspire people to interact with art in ways that encourage humanity, empathy and a deeper understanding of the world we live in. While preserving the nation’s rich artistic heritage is the primary goal, the museum is keenly sensitive to the positive role a cultural institution can play in development and progress of society.
At MAP, we believe that impacting and sensitising the next generation to the heritage of the country is paramount: a cause that will be championed through a variety of educational programmes as a part of the museum’s outreach. Furthermore, with a concentration on features such as specially designed technological tools, and a 360-degree approach to accessibility for people with special needs, MAP will ensure a more holistic experience for visitors. The team at MAP is committed to establishing art and culture as a soft power tool of global diplomacy, and will strive to bridge the gap between cultural institutions and the community.
