Step back in time to reimagine your neighbourhood this Independence Day

Step back in time, before the explosion of construction and traffic, learn about the heritage of Whitefield. It is a rare privilege to bring back Krupa from Saythu, a collaborative heritage practice led by professionals specialised in heritage conservation and management for a guided unusual walk in Whitefield.

Saythu is partnering with Whitefield Rising through this special walk to explore questions like:

  • What is a neighbourhood?
  • Is it a place that locality residents make?
  • Does local history and geography play a role?
  • Does it have any correlation with local area boundaries drawn by planners?
  • How is it connected with communities?

We will examine some of these questions through event Re-imagine Neighbourhoods @ Whitefield. We invite you to be part of these discussions through a series of events ranging from film screenings, walks, chronicles, and workshops over the next few months.

Re-imagine Neighbourhoods @ Whitefield will be held on Thursday, August 15th at the Whitefield Club from 2:45 p.m. 

Please register and choose one of the following options for your experience:

  • For walk, film and chronicle, you can pay Rs. 200/- here 
  • For film and chronicle, pay Rs. 100/- here

You can make the payment through the following payment options:

  • Google Pay – 9342135215
  • PayTm – 9886646161

You may fill up the form more than once with a common email and phone number for each member of a family, or group. We look forward to your participation in this guided heritage walk in Whitefield!
