Who we are
Square Works Laboratory (SqW:Lab) is a 3 month programme in Mumbai for cultural practitioners from all over the world.  The aim is for creative practitioners 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 and find innovative legacy projects.

SqW:Lab was founded in 2018 by artist Vishwa Shroff, architect Goto Katsushi, curator Charlie Levine, critic/curator Rose van Mierlo and artist Tash Kahn.


SqW:Lab is a multi faceted research fellowship, with four core members that each year each invite a ‘plus 1’.  This invitee is a fellow creative practitioner who is asked to be part of the project, contribute to the conversation and contribute to SqW:Lab’s research themes of drawing, the domestic and process.
