How Rent Shapes Our Cities

Architectural Practice in the Hot Dry



Bangalore International Centre’s (BIC) new visual narrative series, B·LORE seeks to document fresh perspectives about our city. The aim is to tell diverse stories about Bengaluru / Bangalore in a short, audio visual (AV) format.

Some of the subjects that could be explored are history (formation, pre-independence, natural, industrial), culture (people, customs, language dialects, food, work), heritage (all kinds), arts (visual, performing), innovation, citizen involvement, inspiring stories of change, personalities, etc. This list of topics / themes is suggestive and by no means exhaustive. We hope this helps spark more novel ideas.

Any individual or organisation can apply. Successful applicants are eligible for an honorarium of Rs. 20,000.


Bangalore International Centre (BIC) is Non-Profit Institution registered under the Karnataka Societies Registration Act, 1960. BIC Members and Donors have enabled a neutral platform for informed conversations, arts and culture.

Multiple spaces for events and activities

BIC’s facility is a new addition to the intellectual, social and cultural life of Bengaluru. BIC’s 48,000 square feet premises houses an all-day cafe, auditorium, 2 seminar rooms, board room, gallery, library, amphitheatre, rooftop terrace and spaces for indoor and outdoor activities. There is provision for basement parking. These facilities are available for hire by organisations provided the use is consistent with BIC’s objectives and guidelines.

BIC Cafe

Adieu & Namaskaram

BIC has been happy to have incubated the amazing entrepreneurial duo, Kanishka and Pallavi, of Navu Project at BIC Café over the last 20 months. They have now grown wings and will be setting up their own outlet by the end of this year – where remains a secret for now! We wish them well. #fondmemories

We welcome Divya (from Bengaluru Oota Company) and Tresa (from Travancore Tasties) who will operate our BIC Café as Podi & Spice starting Aug 31, 2022. The fare will be around flavours of the four Southern States. At BIC, the café is part of the overall sensory experiences and as in our programming, diversity and variety will remain the flavour. And incubating promising chef talent could well be another BIC contribution to the city! #theshowgoeson

During Aug 16-20, 2022, we will have a minimal F&B operation with finger food served by Arbor.
