BIC Talks Podcast

172. Understanding a Generation



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

The BIC Cafe is now open from 11:00 am to 10.30 pm (except Mondays). It offers all day dining, pop-up events by independent chefs and spaces for private gatherings. We are guided by Government rules in place at any point of time.
