WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

translating ethical research into immersive experiences

We are an academic-run, research-oriented company that provides walking tours of Kolkata for locals and tourists to enable them to experience the city in a new way and connect with diverse local communities. We also organize workshops for children and adults that teach certain skills that are not otherwise available and that make them aware and responsible stakeholders for sustainable maintenance of our collective urban heritage in a time of rapid urban expansion. A part of the revenue we generate is channelled into various independent and collaborative documentation and conservation projects.
