The Museum Mapping Project is an exercise that aims to trace and create an all-inclusive resource of all the museums of India. The museum map will be a dynamic digital platform where audiences can view consolidated information about museums, as well as interact with museum professionals.
The museum mapping project started with the realization that there is no single in-depth online resource that showcases the diversity of museums in India. Given the fact that many museums in India struggle with visitor engagement and funding, the museum map is a space that provides visibility and facilitates interaction between museum professionals and the audience.
Sahapedia.org is an open online resource on the arts, cultures and heritage of India. “Saha”, Sanskrit for “together with”, is an invitation to explore together the richness of our cultural landscapes.
We understand that knowledge around each subject is complex and has many dimensions. So, our platform gives you many options for finding your preferred way around each subject. At Sahapedia, you can read articles, watch videos, listen to interviews, and browse image galleries. You can also visit historic sites and natural spaces through our virtual walks.
In the spirit of building this resource together, once you register, you can also share your writing, photographs and videos through your personal workspace. Once reviewed by Sahapedia editors, your contributions become a part of the shared encyclopedic collection. At Sahapedia, we collaborate with institutions to curate and host material from their collections.
