ATSA 2017 Fellowships are open

About ATSA

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 Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Iran, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka – thereby developing an incredible network of peers across countries.


 Deadline for Applications for 2017-18 is 15 November, 2016
