Hi, I’m Sindu. I’m currently based in Colombo, Sri Lanka, working with local government, finding new and exciting ways to incorporate spatial thinking and mapping within this context.

Before I get ahead of myself, a little about me: I am an urban planner by trade with interests in community building, climate change, open data and spatial justice. While I’m not dabbling in those interests I find myself drawn towards making art. I like to explore my identity as a Tamil woman through a feminist lens, creating visual interpretations of various issues including patriarchal systems and the militarized state. I approach my work with the goal of striking a personal harmony between my identity, my politics and my culture.

I hope to keep this space and my instagram (@murukku) updated with my thoughts and creative endeavours. 

If you have questions or are interested in the work I will be doing while in Sri Lanka, feel free to send me an email at sindu.sivayogam @
