What shapes a space
into a 'place' ?

the 'people'

... who live, build, dream, negotiate - forming all the histories and cultures of the city/place


Often in our busy lives, seldom do we have moments of pause - where we reflect on our immediate surroundings and listen to  the beautiful stories that surround us. These personal narratives, that we have missed  are often not so personal after all. Layers of all our stories fall into the compartments of a collective narrative forming the history and the socio-political story of the place. The People Place Project works in this premise, bringing forth multiple hitherto unknown stories thus providing a re-reading of the place and world we inhabit. 


Started in 2014, with our first title People Called Mumbai, the project now aims to travel across the prime cities of India and the globe. Currently we are exploring at  Chennai, Goa, Kochi and Kashmir.
