InterGlobe Foundation (IGF) has played a pioneering role in the promotion of heritage and culture in India. Since 2014, the foundation has undertaken several significant initiatives which include the preservation and revitalization of Abdur Rahim Khan-I-Khanan's mausoleum in Delhi, the cultural mapping and documentation of ten specific cities, the restoration of the Indra Kund stepwell in Delwara, My City My Heritage campaign and many more.
In keeping with its commitment to strengthen its heritage conservation work, InterGlobe Foundation launched the InterGlobe Heritage Fellowships in 2022 and gave researchers, journalists, architects, and other individuals an opportunity to explore previously undocumented aspects of Indian heritage and culture and help increase awareness of lesser-known aspects of India’s tangible and intangible heritage. After a thorough selection process, two fellows were selected for the InterGlobe Heritage Fellowships 2022 and undertook projects and research on the topics of “Reviving the Lesser Known and Sidelined Musical Instruments - Shreekhol, Taus and Nafiri” and “Beyond the geological magnanimity: Cultural Landscape of Lonar Crater”
About the IHF 2023
InterGlobe Heritage Fellowships (IHF) 2023 is an extension to the Foundation’s efforts in the area of promotion of India’s diverse and rich heritage and culture and aims to bring together a cross-section of the public in documenting and researching the built, natural, and cultural heritage of India.
This year, the fellowships will focus on encouraging professional photographers to document the built and cultural landscape of India, and selected photographers will get the opportunity to visually document a subject or theme of their choice. The researchers can document communities, practices and rituals, built spaces, traditions and festivals, and tell the stories from the perspectives of local stakeholders, but it should align with the current areas of focus of InterGlobe Foundation in the domains of built, cultural and natural heritage.
The InterGlobe Heritage Fellowships 2023 will be awarded to two photographers and are open to both young emerging talent and established photographers. Photo essays produced through the Fellowship will be published on the InterGlobe website and its social media pages, through which they will be accessible to the public. InterGlobe Foundation might also hold an exhibition of these photo essays in the future.
