Welcome to The Heritage Lab
The Heritage Lab is India’s first digital media platform connecting citizens to Museums, art and heritage through campaigns, public-engagement programs & free access content for children and adults; families, educators and cultural professionals.
WHAT WE DO
We organize events for public engagement with the arts, publish content and stories from museums and the art-world, produce media including videos & podcasts for museums, provide digital services & trainings to museum staff, build / support campaigns like #ArtAndFeminism, #MuseumWeek, #CultureThemes, etc. & share museum-based educational resources with educators.
To make Museums more accessible, inclusive and FUN, we have you covered with:
Here you can discover fascinating objects and art; play games – piece jigsaws, take quizzes, and fill crosswords; download learning material and access educator resources and find your way around museums with our quick guides! If you are a cultural-professional, stay up to date with latest trends and news; grants and job opportunities under our Museum Revolution segment!
You can also Subscribe to our monthly /weekly dose of museums to explore,
art-lessons , event updates and more.
Collaborations & Partnerships
Today we support and enable Museums to meet their objectives in a number of ways including digital strategy (not limited to social media), advocacy and communications. We also work with publications, and brands that are well in line with our mission.
Hello & Thank You for stopping by!
I am Medhavi, and I am an explorer at heart. But then, aren’t we all? I have a strange love for museums, handmade, and I dig stories rooted in culture – and since 2009, I have been wanting everyone to feel that way!
The journey has culminated into ‘The Heritage Lab’ – India’s first digital media platform connecting citizens to Museums, art and heritage. The idea is to inspire wonder, awe, and curiosity as we go about discovering different aspects of culture.
I find it a privilege to have been recognized for my work with India’s artisans and craftspeople; leading a range of projects, programs, fellowships to encourage public engagement with the arts and the spirit of inquiry in children and adults. Engaging with museums though, has truly widened my horizons 🙂
I strongly believe that Heritage is a community need, community-created and therefore is the responsibility of the community to support and preserve. So I particularly refuse to believe that Heritage or Culture is a “niche” sector.
I ask for YOUR support to make this more mainstream! Here are little steps you can take:
Visit Museums when you can, wherever you can! Share you experience on social media using #MuseumsEveryday. You can also submit a little note about your visit.
Attend Events : there are fun thematic walks, workshops, lectures (that word is probably making you yawn, but it’s literally a longer Pecha-Kucha you want to hear) at museums or city-walks nearly every month!
