‘WWCW is a constellation of events that is designed to open up various directions of cultural and historical inquiry while eluding fixed institutional or disciplinary mandates. It will act as a stage for new relationships to emerge among initiatives in the arts, architecture, urbanism and culture at large. WWCW is presented as a production set for ideas that will, we hope, circulate into the cultural bloodstream of Bombay. It is a prototype for a full-scale festival of ideas, which is intended to take place in 2013.’
