Intercultural Centre

Our home and hosts for the South India  Gatherings & Retreats. Outside Bangalore city, closer to nature, with a warm team, multiple working halls and rooms, dining areas and rooms for plenty. The land and people who hold us, feed us and support us while we work and sing and dance.

Fireflies is a 10-acre estate, nestled among trees, on a land that slopes towards a lake. It is ideal for spending time away from the noises of city life, immersed in majestic isolation and sheltered by Mother Nature’ healing embrace.

Infinite Souls

Artists' Retreat

Nestled in the shadow of the beautiful monolith Savandurga, it is 40km from the centre of Bangalore, in Vardenahalli village.


The cottages, rehearsal spaces, outdoor kitchen, woodfire oven and dining area were built by young masons from a labour collective using stabilized mud block, local granite and recycled wood.


Infinite Souls is an entirely un-funded, artist-led space. It is sustained by the workshops, residencies and performances it hosts.
