FICA  is instituting THE AMOL VADEHRA ART GRANT. Unlike our grants which are made via applications, the Amol Vadehra Art Grant is a nominated award. The awardee will be selected via a pool of nominations received from invited members of the art community. Nominees will be expected to make a formal proposal to FICA about a work or body of works they wish to produce. The final recipient of the award will be announced in January 2016. The Grant is a production grant and aimed at supporting an Indian artist under the age of 40 years to develop a body of works. The grant amount is Rs. 2 lacs and the period of the grant is one year. The funds can be used to cover the artist’s direct costs towards creative development and production of a body of artworks. Read More>>
