Arts & Culture Resources India To Host Offline Meet For Creative & Cultural Professionals
25 September 2018
If you're in the creative or cultural circle in India, chances are you've come across a group on Facebook called Arts and Culture Opportunities, Residencies, Workshops, Jobs in India – Arts and Culture Resources India or ACRI for short.
The name is certainly a mouthful, but that's because what the group does is proportionally extensive. Since it was founded in October 2013, ACRI has established itself as a reliable online source for cultural and creative professionals to find upskilling, funding and employment opportunities.
In a country as large and diverse as India, and especially as disorganised, it's easy for opportunities in such spaces to go by undiscovered. ACRI acts as a mediator here, connecting people with relevant jobs, funds, scholarships, residences, learning opportunities and so on.
Following a phenomenal success on Facebook, ACRI has now started hosting offline networking meets across cities in India. After hosting sessions in Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Chennai, the next meet-up is scheduled for 24th October in Pune, at TIFA Working Studios.
Attendees can swap stories, trial and tribulations of their work in the creative and cultural sector, and find like-minded professionals to work and collaborate with, or simply to form connections.
