Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to ensure young artists in India have the financial means, education and opportunity to pursue a career in the performing arts if they have the talent and interest in this, and are not forced into mainstream options against their will.
It's all part of making a better world.
Artists have funding to study and grants for creating and presenting work. Arts organisations get government funding for educational, community projects and performing arts development.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by young artists particularlly from disadvantaged communities and arts organisations but also the society at large.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
I will evaluate if the Government creates any art support programmes. Currently this is at zero for young artists and those not in traditional styles/forms.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
