Delhi government increases scholarships for advancing arts practise

The move will help budding artists and artists with disabilities.

In a move which will support budding artists and artists with disabilities, the Delhi government has increased the number and amount of scholarships for advancing arts practice. Manish Sisodia, Deputy Chief Minister, said, “To make arts policy more inclusive, the Sahitya Kala Parishad of Delhi government has introduced a number of new programmes and broadened the scope of existing ones”.

This scheme’s main highlights are the introduction of new categories like community arts, visual arts and research in art development; broadening the scope of music, theatre and dance categories; 10 reserved scholarships in each category for artists with disability; and inclusion of contemporary mediums like video-making, photography, digital art along with painting.

While making this announcement, Sisodia, who is also the Art, Culture, and Languages Minister, has said that his government's main aim is to make art practice and funding more inclusive and not just follow hierarchies.

According to the new scheme, a candidate, who applies at Sahitya Kala Parishad and grabs one of the limited seats in a category, can get a scholarship of Rs 4,000 per month for visual arts, dance, theatre, music, and community arts, while Rs 12,000 per month for research and arts development.
