by Menaka Rodriguez and Arundhati Ghosh

No 105, KH Road (Lalbagh Double Road), Bangalore - 560 027

Is it Passion? Personality? Process? Patience? Perseverance?
Or sheer good luck?
What gives?
Come find out more about the compelling stories of resource mobilisation

We are delighted to welcome all those engaged in the arts and culture in Bangalore to learn and understand from experiences in resource mobilisation in the arts and culture in a workshop with Menaka Rodriguez, Head, Resource Mobilisation and Outreach and Arundhati Ghosh, Executive Director.

Between both of them they have about 30 years of engaging, negotiating, requesting, and appealing and the results have been a wide range of emotions from the 'absolutely delightful' to 'utterly dejected'. Together, they will share their thoughts and learnings in this bad, mad world of resource mobilisation.

(The workshop will be in English, but between Menaka and Arundhati, they can manage Bangla, Hindi, a bit of Tamil and very little Kannada, so with some translations it could work.)

Please note that tea/coffee will be provided. There are a number of lunch options close to the venue.

Limited Seats Only: Please register by September 15, 2018 by sending an email to
