Who we are

Square Works Laboratory (SqW:Lab) is a fellowship programme in Mumbai for cultural practitioners from all over the world.  The aim is for creatives from various disciplines to come together, play, work site responsively, showcase their process in the form of drawings, doodles and notes, and be inspired by each other, the domestic, and find innovative legacy projects for collaborations to continue.

Directors Katsushi Goto, Charlie Levine and Vishwa Shroff, along with an invited ‘fourth plinth’ or fourth corner, each invite a ‘plus 1’ to take part in the fellowship. As we experiment with the format of delivery, and invite new partnerships, the aims remain the same to examine the domestic, drawing and process via a series of Play Projects, conversations, collaborations and cooking.


SqW:Lab is a multi faceted research fellowship.  Each session SqW:Lab invites creative practitioners to be the fellows to work on projects, whether they be the Play Projects on site in Mumbai, in shop windows around the world or in book / print formats.
