ARThinkSouthAsia, a program in Arts Management and Cultural Policy, is addressed to today’s cultural practitioners. ARThinkSouthAsia is an initiative of the South Asian network of Goethe Institutes - the cultural institute of the Federal Republic of Germany and The British Council - The United Kingdom's international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities, and held in cooperation with Khoj International Artists’ Association.
The ARThinkSouthAsia Fellowship is designed to help develop skills, knowledge, networks and experience of potential leaders in the cultural sector of South Asia, which includes museums, the visual and performing arts and digital media. 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.
Fifteen Fellows will be selected from across South Asia.
The Fellowship includes:
- A two-week residential course in May 2014
- A secondment/internship in Germany/UK/South Asia over the year 2014-15
- A concluding seminar in May 2015
The two-week residential course in 'arts management' is aimed at arts/culture professionals to prepare them for managerial and leadership roles in an arts/culture organisation. The course is designed to include a balance of theory and professional training and consists of five to six modules which include latest thinking in cultural management in areas such as strategic planning, marketing & communication, financial planning, fundraising, cultural policy, human resources, and digital media. 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.
The participant will be offered a four-week secondment/internship best suited to his/her needs, interests and objectives in an arts organization in Germany/UK/South Asia during the year.
The Fellow may be required to attend a closing seminar at the end of the Fellowship year to present and share updates on his/her project and learnings of the secondment with the new Fellows of 2015-16.
Deadline to apply: November 15, 2013
