MaathuKathe, meaning conversations in Kannada, is a monthly initiative started by IFA in May 2013, to open its office to the public as a space for dialogue on arts and culture. The objective of these MaathuKathes is to engage with artists and scholars in the city who are not IFA’s grantees, as well as, enable the audience in Bangalore to meet artists and scholars who may be traveling to/through the city. IFA has organised MaathuKathes consisting of a wide array of events from concerts, book readings and film screenings to plays, lecture-demonstrations and presentations.
