Archival and Museum Fellowships

Grant Period: over one year

For working with the Delhi Visual Archive housed in the Centre for Community Knowledge (CCK), Ambedkar University, Delhi. The Delhi Visual Archive is a repository of the visual history of Delhi, from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, which includes a current holding of 4,500 digitised photographs. This fellowship supports research towards an understanding of community, gender and space and, the changing relationship between an ‘image’ or representation and a built environment, all of which will lead to a physical exhibition titled ‘Delhi Dialogues: A Conversation between People and the City’. The outcomes will include a physical exhibition that will tour two cities, public programmes which include an online dialogue/ web presence, community workshops, city walks, speculative storytelling, lectures and field trips. The Grantee’s deliverables to IFA with the final report will be images, audio recordings, texts, and a publication.
