Nita Mukesh Ambani Cultural Centre (NMACC), which is Nita Ambani’s dream project, will be launched on March 31, 2023. Housed within Mumbai's Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC), the centre claims to showcase the best of India’s art and culture to the world. NMACC plans to create an international destination in India for local art, artists, performers, and creators, better than what is available in regions like the US or Europe.
Nita Ambani, the founder chairperson of Reliance foundation, called the centre a truly inclusive centre for performers and visitors, as well as for dreamers and creators, which aims to make the arts accessible to everyone with world-class infrastructure.
““I hope our spaces nurture and inspire talent, bringing people together from across India and the world,” said Nita Ambani, while calling NMACC “our commitment to preserve and promote Indian arts.”
Isha Ambani announced the opening of NMACC in October 2022 to honour her mother's love for culture.
The four-storeyed NMACC will contain 16,000 sq feet of purpose-built exhibition space and three theatres. The largest of these, a 2,000-seat Grand Theatre, will include an extraordinary and unique lotus-themed chandelier with 8,400 Swarovski crystals.
A trio of dedicated spaces for the performing arts include The Grand Theatre, The Studio Theatre and The Cube, all built with cutting-edge technology to cater to a wide range of experiences, from intimate screenings and stimulating conversations to multilingual programming and international productions. The centre will also launch the Art House, a four storeyed space to spotlight leading Indian and international artists.
