About the event

IFBE and the Tata Trusts’ Arts and Culture portfolio invite you to the fifth edition of Kalapana – a Tata Trusts platform that serves as an extension to its programs, bringing together myriad stakeholders, including practitioners and theorists, to deliberate further on subjects and areas in the arts that are left uncovered, or those that need to be considered in discussion.

Kalapana 2023 takes the form of a conversation between Ratish Nanda (India CEO, Aga Khan Trust for Culture) and Kaiwan Mehta (theorist, critic and Dean, Balwant Sheth School of Architecture, NMIMS University) discussing the 3-part volume “Specifications Manual for Built Heritage Conservation” – a publication by Tata Trusts in collaboration with Aga Khan Trust for Culture.

All interested, and invested, in built heritage conservation are welcome to join us for this upcoming discussion.

Date: 23rd February, 2023

Time: 6 pm onwards

In collaboration with

Tata Trusts

In identifying gaps in the art sector, the TATA Trusts Arts and Culture portfolio works across three major areas – conservation, performing arts and art education. These verticals are not addressed independently; instead, the programmes overlap across the three focus areas so that the impact is long-lasting, and moreover, can be built upon by the organisations in the years to come. In addition to supporting projects in the arts, the Tata Trusts have also initiated their own platform in 2017 — Kalapana. Conceived as a two-way celebration, Kalapana is a platform to showcase organisations and artists supported by the Trusts, and to explain how the Trusts make these choices to support them — through discussions, exhibitions, talks, screenings and performances.
