Online Performing Arts Festival
Thank you for your contribution to the COVID artists fund. 100% of your contribution is used to support artists who have been immensely affected by the pandemic through direct cash transfers.
On this page, you can access the Online Performing Arts Festival between 10th June 2020 to 14th June 2020 starting at 8pm IST each day. The festival will showcase diverse performing art traditions of India, many of which remain outside the digital economy. We believe that it is important to cultivate an ecosystem where we can appreciate and pay for all art, and this is a small step toward that.
Please bookmark this page and check back in each day from 8 PM IST to watch the day’s line-up of programs, which will be available for 24 hours.
Note: Due to technical difficulties, we are unable to feature Poikaal Kuthirai as part of today’s festival.
About the COVID Artists Fund
Thousands of artists in India are struggling financially due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Art performances in small towns, urban spaces, villages and temples have completely stopped. These artists are struggling as they do not have a primary source of income owing to Covid-19. The COVID Artists Fund supports those artists who have been immensely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic by providing monetary support to help them during these difficult times.
