We are very happy to present The Chitpur Archive, a collection of images, textures, stories, references and text fragments that document the many facets Chitpur Road. This archive is being collectively created by the members of the Chitpur Heritage Action Group, as they explore the history of the locality and the lives of community today.
The archive is a space of exploration and not necessarily of objective, expert generated information. It functions as a space for inspiration, a collection of fragments that loosely connect to each other as we try to create a coherent narrative. It is created in the hope that these connections help us to think of Chitpur Road in new ways as we begin to develop our projects.
We are a Kolkata based non-profit dedicated to promoting civic engagement through participatory art projects.
