Our daily routines, schedules and commutes are a large part of how we interact with our city. However, we rarely take the time to reflect on how these rituals contribute to our experiences within these spaces.

We invite you to reimagine Bengaluru through your memories and create personal maps of the city with this exploratory workshop. Through the workshop, architect and building conservationist Veena Choudhary will introduce participants to mental mapping, or the idea of looking at geographies from personal points of view. Using the sensory factors of touch, sound, smell and sight, this workshop will enable participants to reflect on their daily routines and redefine what living and interacting with the city means to them. By introducing a creative and unique way of expressing one’s experiences of the city, the workshop helps the participants embark on a transformative journey of connecting with different facets of Bengaluru.

This event 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.


This event is fully booked.
