Bombay Chapter

The Indian partner organization is Majlis, a centre for alternative culture and rights discourse in collaboration with the Mohile Parikh Centre for Contemporary Culture (MPC3).

The beginning of Majlis lies in the womens’ movements of the 1980s. The founders of Majlis are trained and honed by the euphoric beginning of the feminist consciousness of that era. Since then Majlis has grown in the most non-linear fashion - responding to concerns of cultural practices and rights discourse, often surprising even those within the organisation. Majlis has two centres: The Legal resource centre and Cultural centre.

The Mohile Parikh Center (MPC), Bombay, is one of the leading centers in India devoted to the Arts. Ever since its inception in 1990, the Mohile Parikh Centre for the Visual Arts (MPCVA) has functioned as an integral part of the National Center for the Performing Arts (NCPA). In the year 2004, the Architecture Forum of the MPC has expanded ist horizons to become the Mohile Parikh Center for Contemporary Culture, or MPC3.

Curators of the “Bombay chapter” are Madhusree Dutta and Flavia Agnes.
