India Arts Education Forum
An open-source, community-led platform that democratises access to arts education and training in India.
Lead Investigator: Gaurav Singh
Group Members: Varoon P. Anand, Kritika Dey
The Indian Arts Education Forum seeks to bring together information, resources and networks around arts education in one single place. Students can find up-to-date information about artistic courses, training and programs across artforms, locations, duration and commitment as well as a place to interact with arts professionals, course alumni, arts foundations and more for knowledge exchange, capacity building and collaborative approaches. Additionally, institutions and organisations offering training (both formal and informal) programs will be able to manage their institutional pages and publish updates as well as engage potential students through the platform. Foundations and arts institutions can also leverage this platform to administer scholarships and student support programs in their arts portfolios.
This project received seed funding in 2022 under the Codes, Creativity, Communities (C3) program, initiated by Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan Mumbai and Zentrum für Kunst und Medien ZKM, Karlsruhe, and further developed in collaboration with BeFantastic.
