Coping with a World Adrift

The Making of Sporting Cultures



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.
