Our mission at Majha House is to create awareness on issues of critical importance, to excite the imagination as also to showcase new career opportunities through workshops and classes in theatre, photography, creative writing, screen play writing, technical courses in film editing and sound recording etc. Majha House is thus envisioned as a collaborative space seeking to build an alternative community in the urban centre of Amritsar. To this end, we invite a range of writers, illustrators, publishers, artists and academics to showcase their work at Café Kikli. Some of our other events include-
