Social Distancing. Flattening the Curve. It’s underway. Whenever we do come out of the lock down situation, there will be a ‘staggered re-emergence’ of activities that are allowed. Social gatherings is likely to be at the tail end of resumption of normal life. As a Public Institution, BIC needs to do the right thing by its patrons and the city…. the world too, given the nature of its spread and impact internationally!

We have decided to not schedule any BIC public events at our premises till May 31, 2020. We will continue to monitor the situation and when able, commence our onsite events.

Do keep an eye out on our social media, website and emails for updates. Do check out our podcast, BIC Talks (also available on all podcast platforms) and our livecast platform, BIC Streams (available through YouTube too).
