About Us

Today’s evolving audience deserves more than just entertainment – they deserve stories that educate and empower.

Based in Mumbai, Civic Studios was incubated at the MIT Media Lab, USA, to tell stories that move and motivate. Art has since time immemorial been a space for dialogue, discussion & debate and we’re here to ask those questions and provoke change.
