Why Support MAP

Why Support MAP

“I believe it’s only through private museums and private and corporate patronage that anything meaningful can be done to change the status quo of the arts in India”

Abhishek Poddar
Founder & Trustee

India’s artistic and cultural heritage stretches back thousands of years, yet we continue to lose much of this valuable heritage. Generations of artistic creation, a testimony to a time that has disappeared forever, will never return if we do not act quickly.

At MAP, we believe that an exposure to the arts can be invaluable to human development. Children gain essential life skills through the arts, such as empathy, lateral thinking, critical enquiry, interpersonal skills and creativity. However, few museums in India currently offer engaging educational opportunities for younger audiences as well as adults.

MAP’s programming and initiatives are suitable to audiences of all age groups and they encourage the public to experience the joys of learning through the arts. We strive to make our activities accessible and inclusive and in doing so we want to inspire other museums to do the same.

All that we do is supported through private donations. When you support MAP, you help us build an institution that exposes our present generation to India’s artistic and cultural heritage as well as become our partner in preserving a rich legacy for the generations to come. Your contribution is needed today more than ever, as we are fast approaching our opening in 2021.

Please give what you can, talk to us about supporting our work and join us in creating this new museum for all.
