Arts Walk on MG Road | October 31, 2015, January 09, 2016 & April 02, 2016 | Bangalore
This walk on M G Road with Avehi Menon and Archit Guha focusses on the memories of people through recorded oral narratives; stories that speak of a longer history of the arts in this space. These tales bring together cinema, music, and photography in the old South Parade, our current MG Road. This walk involves a curated soundscape that people will be able to listen to as we rediscover one of the most popular streets in Bangalore.
MG Road has long been a site for the production and consumption of popular culture. Originally part of the 'cantonment' precinct, it has been home to restaurants, bars, cinema halls, photo studios and several other establishments that have nurtured the arts.
Avehi and Archit from the Centre for Public History (CPH) at the Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology will be conducting the walk. CPH has been collecting and curating oral histories of Bangalore since its inception in 2011, and aims to communicate these to a wider audience through walks and other public forums.
This Arts Walk is a part of Project 560, 2015, an IFA initiative, partnered by Citi India.
