ARThinkSouthAsia is a management, policy and research programme in the arts and cultural sector. Initiated in 2010, the programme is dedicated to founding and supporting a cadre of arts managers committed to the cause of capacity building in the South Asian region, encompassing Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Iran, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

The ARThinkSouthAsia Fellowship is designed to develop the skills, knowledge, networks and experience of potential leaders in the cultural sector of South Asia. We believe that by supporting exceptional individuals to make a step‐change in their skills and career potential, we can bring substantial benefit to the cultural field as a whole.

The Fellowship is fully funded and includes:

  • two-week residential courses in India in May 2018 that includes several intensive modules that is pertinent to the cultural sector and its management
  • a 30-day secondment with a cultural institution in Germany/UK/South Asia over the year 2018-19. 

Applications are welcome from practitioners working across a wide range of arts and cultural activity, as also from those working outside it who demonstrates knowledge, understanding and passion for arts and culture. Artists and persons with unconventional careers and experiences were also invited to apply.
