Production Grant – INR 4,00,000 Lacs
Upto 10 Artists
For early career artists and creative practitioners working in visual arts.
Application Deadline : 15 June 2021
Visual artists and other creative practitioners contribute to our cultural identity and economic boost. What contemporary artists and creative practitioners create, is what later is documented as evidence of the times. If creative output stops, there will be no way of documenting today’s times. Although art today is subsidized by collectors and art enthusiasts, in a larger prospect, artists still suffer economic distress and not all artists are able to make a living based off creating their pieces.
Artists would not be called artists if not for their continuous creative processes. With the pandemic running for more than a year, artists who are young, emerging or even in their mid-career have been needing all the support provided, to be able to just continue with what they do best. As most creative fraternities across the country and the world continue to battle against this destructive virus, a large section of artists have been losing out on all sources of income which not only is affecting the creative processes but the livelihood of these passionate artists.
The unpredicted pause in the regular activities of art galleries and open markets, rescission of art shows, and a pause to the purchases of artworks and handicrafts has severely undercut the economic livelihoods of artists, artisans and their communities.
Not all artists have a full-time job that guarantees a monthly stipend – and we understand that makes it difficult for artists whose livelihood depend on the sale of their artworks, small or big, to survive let alone create.
With this production grant, we are hoping to provide opportunities for such passionate artists to worry a little less and utilize the funds to continue with their practices.
