Who are we?

What’s up Bharat is a start-up social enterprise launched on August 15, 2011 that comprises art and program operations at a physical hub in Hauz Khas Village and an online hub on polling and multimedia launching in April 2012. It is hub, network and new media platform that delivers services for people who want social change in India by democratizing innovations and best practices in art, polling, new media, entrepreneurship and social justice. Our tagline: Art-Ideas-Action / Kala-Kalpana-Karma.

Our mission is to connect the youth of India with the resources/networks they need and to inspire, engage and empower them on social change through art, ideas and action. We are creating a new system based on:

Multi-format physical hub for arts/retail and various events

Online hub for media, polling and communities on social issues

Three services - Arts, Media and Programs - under one brand

Network of artists, college associates and NGO partners, and focused outreach efforts towards excluded segments of the population

Our physical hub, called the Jai Bharat Centre, is a 5000 square feet multi-format event and interaction space located at One Hauz Khas Village, in the cultural hub of Delhi. Spread across three floors the space is used for arts & retail, co-working, media and events/programs for civic engagement including a regular schedule of our own events (forums, workshops, screenings and performances) and different programs with partners. We rent space to many small NGOs at nominal cost and our activities are revenue neutral, employing a cross-subsidy model, balancing revenue generation with outreach and impact. The goal is to create a unique physical hub for 'the motivated youth’, an arts and events centre and also a café, library and media engagement space.

The online hub is a Web 2.0 community and a new media platform with issues based polling, curated multimedia and link to programs, providing seamless online-offline integration with JBC’s events and exhibitions as well as a connected, national web community of college users and various media and program partners who can share content and exchange with each other in multiple ways leveraging our services.
