What does Bengaluru/Bangalore mean to you? How do you share or describe the dreams, anger, frustration, isolation, change and connections it holds? Join us in building more meaningful connections with the city as you go on a story walk, collect impressions and engage with diverse stories of the city, and share your own experiences of Bengaluru through your own Map of Memories. This workshop has been designed by Aliyeh Rizvi and Arzu Mistry, co-founders of The Memory Maps Project.

The workshop will be facilitated in English and you will be guided through the workshop modules. Participants will be provided with art materials but are however expected to bring a small notebook and pen. Participants may also bring their own art materials. No background or skill in design or art is required to participate in this workshop.  

The workshop is organised in collaboration with The Memory Maps Project and Native Place. It has been curated under Thinking Cities, MAP’s public programming theme for the quarter. Through this theme, we explore and reimagine cities through the lenses of space, identity, history, memory and more.
