National Mission on Cultural Mapping

  • National Mission on Cultural Mapping (NMCM) was initiated by the Ministry of Culture in 2017.
  • The program aims to preserve the rich Art and Cultural Heritage of India. 
  • The objective of the mission is to compile data of artists, art forms & geo location with inputs from Central Ministries, State Governments & art/culture bodies.
  • Data collection will be assisted by technical collaboration from National E-Governance Division (NEGD)/Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MEITY).
  • Information from art & culture Academies under Ministry of Culture has been collected. This will be later entered into database after due correction.
  • The database will be accessible to people. Hence, it will be a resource for the media, researchers and funders.
