Call for Proposals: IFA’s Arts Practice Programme
The Arts Practice Program encourages artists from various disciplines to critically examine existing notions within their fields of practice. The programme seeks to change the way the arts are conventionally practiced and create a foundation where experimentation, critique and dialogue play a vital role in creativity. The programme invites proposals both from practitioners working within as well as across disciplines. You could be a wtiter, curator, playwright or a performing/visual artist from any discipline.
For further details and updates on the deadline, you can have a look at Indian Foundation for the Arts’ website.
Call for Applications: Charles Wallace India Trust Awards 2015-16
The CWIT offers funded programs for various disciplines that vary between three months and a year. The programmes can be fully or partly funded and are on offer for anyone interested in their specific, niche area of study. What seperates the CWI Trust from the rest is that the way they sift their candidate – passion, commitment and a clear idea of what you want to do are major criteria for selection. CWIT understands the needs of creative people and tailors itself accordingly.
Application forms for Charles Wallace Long Term awards 2015-16 will be accepted from 01 August to 15 November 2014 at the nearest British Council centre. Application forms will be accepted in hardcopy only. You can check here for further information.
