TISStory - Glimpses Through Our Archives (8:30 mins, English, 2012)

A Journey That Reveals Many Stories Some told, some perhaps waiting to be discovered...

For many of us: students, alumni, staff, parents and other stakeholders, TISS conjures up images of lush green spaces, resonant with bridsong; memories of inviting classrooms, innovative fieldwork, animated discussions and above all a spirit of camaraderie and freedom.

We have been a part of this memorable journey, that started in Nagpada in 1936 and continues in 2011, as TISS expands to new campuses across the country. In this exhibition, we celebrate this continuing journey, this rich legacy of an institution that has always reached out to society, through relevant education, research and field action, with a commitment to social justice for all.

This is a Platinum Jubilee initiative of the School of Media and Cultural Studies of TISS, which has created an audio-visual archive that documents the course of TISS’ history over the past seven decades and marks its contribution to society in various fields. This extensive video and web archive contains 55 in-depth transcribed video interviews of alumni, staff and faculty of the Institute, photographs collected over the years, archival newspaper clippings and letters from alumni to the Institute. This endeavor has resulted in the creation of a permanent exhibition, a calendar, a website as well as a series of five films, all of which will come together through this archive.
