India Arts Funding Forum
The India Arts Funding Forum is an open-source community-led forum for Indian artists to discover successful funding proposals, receive feedback on their funding applications, find funding opportunities and contribute towards a transparent arts funding ecosystem in the country.
The India Arts Funding Forum seeks to address siloed knowledge, opaque networks and scattered information in the arts funding landscape of the country.
With a community-led approach at its heart, it is envisioned as a digital portal accessible on the web and mobile with Indian artists across disciplines, locations and experience levels as its primary audience.
On the forum, artists can:
Upload funding proposals
Consent to be contacted by other artists for feedback and guidance
Receive feedback on draft or unsuccessful funding proposals
Explore a real-time list of funding opportunities by theme, discipline and other filters
Create and engage in discussion threads about arts funding-related topics
The forum relies on crowd-sourced materials (proposals, opportunities, threads) and peer-led activity (discussions, feedback, submissions) to open up knowledge, networks and information for artists.
