Social Distancing. Flattening the Curve. It is becoming increasingly evident that the best way for public spaces to help fight the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic is to embrace these two core principles. 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, learn more about possible preventive measures and when able commence our regular programming.

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