Call for Submissions

The world around us is changing rapidly. Climate change, disease, wealth, gender and racial inequalities, etc – there is much to be discussed and debated. So, we want to hear from you!

Co:Lab is inviting you to submit your work to be featured on our website!

Through this effort, we are curating a wide variety of open access information, beyond the confines of a strictly academic setup. We will host content created by a diverse community of architects, artists, designers, planners, academics, etc. The idea here is to curate richer, inclusive and more approachable data on cities, the structures that shape them and the inhabitants who experience them every day.

What kind of content do we publish on our website?

We accept original, unpublished submissions that explore both the built and unbuilt environment. These can take on different forms that include but are not limited to articles, photo essays, videos and poetry.

How can you get your content published?

Please send us a short abstract of 200-300 words describing your submission, along with a title and a short bio of 50-100 words to info@co-lab.in. We’ll get back to you with an answer within a week. After this, you will have two weeks to send us the completed submission.
