Art has the power to bring transformational change to the Cities/Districts we create Content & Analytic solutions for. Many connections unite the different geographies of India, within & beyond the political & cartographic boundaries of today. Religious circuits ( Char Dham, Buddhist circuit, Pancha Bhoota Sthanagal Shiva temples, Jyotirlingas, Jain temple circuit, Sufi shrine circuit etc), Masonic english city urban plans, French, Portuguese, Dutch & Danish forts, Mughal tombs/ Persian gardens, Tiger sanctuaries, Tourism circuits ( Golden Triangle, Himalayan treks etc), Colonial Hill Stations, Port towns & Beach resorts, Princely State Palaces/Forts etc.
Our Prarang project founders who have seed-funded the venture, have also provided free access to us of their private collections which today form a rare aggregation of 200,000+ objects ( mostly books, prints ( lithographs, maps, photographs, picture postcards, stamps, posters etc) & coins, fossils etc). This collection is used by us for our daily research & digital image needs in content creation for cities/districts. While the founders themselves have been contributing (with their collections) to various Art projects individually, we now extend & offer the opportunity to partner with us on showcasing some of these objects/ collections to specific City/District communities -
