The Museum of Art & Photography (MAP) in Bengaluru invites you to a one-day conference on inclusion in cultural organisations to be held on July 1, 2023. We are bringing together experts from the arts, as well as the broader development sector to highlight and demystify the complexities of inclusion within the arts.

The day-long conference will feature conversations on the status of inclusion in cultural organisations, the built environment, fostering a meaningful audience engagement, representation within the workforce, and the need for a strategic effort by funders to move towards a more inclusive art sector. The conference will also feature an introductory session on Indian Sign Language and will conclude with a networking reception. 

While we recognise that Inclusion comprises a wide variety of categories and nuances, in its first iteration, the 2023 conference will focus on disability and gender. 

We invite you to join us for an opportunity to learn from the panelists’ experiences, gain valuable insights and share your perspectives to contribute to a better art sector for all.

The conference is free, but registration is mandatory.
