It’s that time of year again: ARThinkSouthAsia open call for emerging arts professionals and leaders!

ARThinkSouthAsia (ATSA) is committed to the development of innovative arts and cultural management within the cultural sector, as well as cultivating conversations around the role of cultural policy, the creative industries, and their role in our burgeoning cities and peri-urban areas in South Asia. 

The programmes seek to empower arts managers in the planning and development of sustainable cultural organisations. Arts professionals learn critical management aspects such as strategic planning, fundraising, marketing, digital media, human resources, and financial planning, keeping cultural values as a core of the programme. 

The programmes are aimed at the arts and culture sector in the wider South Asian region – encompassing Bangladesh, India, Iran, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka – thereby developing an incredible network of peers across countries.

The Fellowship includes:

  • A two‐week residential course in India in May 2017: This includes intensive modules in Strategic Planning, Cultural Policy, Marketing and Communications, Fundraising, HR, and Finance. These modules will be led by a mix of Indian and international professional trainers and academics, and will be supplemented by expert guest lectures. Participation in the residential programme is mandatory.
  • A 30-day secondment with a cultural institution in Germany/UK/South Asia over the year 2017-18.
  • A concluding seminar in May 2018. (to be confirmed)

The Fellowship is supported by Goethe-Institut, British Council, and the Piramal Art Foundation.
