About Godrej India Culture Lab
The Godrej India Culture Lab acts as a catalyst to challenge existing notions of culture and encourages dialogue and experimentation through innovative programming. We started in 2011 as a space for cross-pollination of ideas, and have branched out into multiple fields over the years. Our headquarters are located in Vikhroli, Mumbai where we host our physical events. We have now switched to the digital space curating online events. Our videos are an archive of changing contemporary India – you can start exploring here!
Aside from our annual humanities Leadership Programme, we offer International as well as National Fellowships to students contemporary India from a variety of lenses. Over the past couple of years, the Lab has also been working on a mapping project called the Mumbai Culture Map: libraries, museums, galleries – it has nearly 180 cultural spaces across the city to explore. Check it out here – and don’t forget to visit us some time!If you want to keep up-to-date on everything Culture Lab, sign up for our monthly newsletter here on our website.

About the Leadership Programme
The Culture Lab Leadership Programme is a summer internship for humanities students in Mumbai. It is a deep dive into the culture industry of the city, with visits and masterclasses from some of the most incredible creative professionals in the field. Students from disciplines ranging from architecture to sociology come together at the Lab to create something that adds to the city’s conversations on culture. The Meme Project is created by the batch of 2020. Find out more about our previous batches’ work on Urdu Culture Now (2018) and Migration Museum (2019).
