Giving Back @ Heritage Walk Calcutta
Trusted Heritage is an initiative of Heritage Walk Calcutta to undertake projects and training programmes that address overlooked heritage issues. We seek to change the heritage conversation in South Asia and beyond both by ourselves and in collaboration with like-minded organizations and universities worldwide.
A majority of the Trusted Heritage projects are independently funded by reinvesting part of the profits generated by Heritage Walk Calcutta's commercial activities.
HOW OUR TOURS ARE BORN
what goes on behind the scenes while developing each of our walking tours
We led our inaugural walking tour on
12th February 2017. This walk was in South Park Street cemetery & 20 people explored with us.
Since then we conducted 418 walking tours, 47 day tours, 04 Family History Discovery Trail & 41 Virtual Walks. In addition we also conducted workshops for Göethe Institut & the British Council & 2 Study Abroad Programmes for University of Exeter.
We helped both locals & tourists to explore Kolkata. More than 68% of our explorers are locals who wanted to know more about their city. People from 118 cities in 20 countries have already explored Kolkata with us through our Virtual Walks.
Since 2017 our team of academics have worked as research and historical accuracy consultants in 3 films/webseries & 4 international heritage and culture projects.
