The Asiatic Society of Mumbai, Mumbai Research Centre
World Postcard Day in Association with ATLASkeeda
October 1, 2022 from 9.30 a.m. to 6.00 p.m.
The Mumbai Research Centre of the Asiatic Society of Mumbai presents "From Mumbai with Love", a day-long event celebrating World Postcard Day in association with ATLASkeeda, a visual storytelling initiative.
In a world where we exchange GIFs and WhatsApp messages at the speed of light, there comes a day when you can learn the art of slowing down. Where the message exchanged can be personalized, meaningful and a lovely surprise for the recipient.

Dive into the fascinating 153-year-old history of postcards, get your hands on postcards and stamps from all over the world, design and write your own, affix stamps, and actually post it! And if that isn’t enough, meet a thriving community of young ‘postcrossers’ who keep this tradition alive!
