Khoj Support Grants in India for Early-Career Artists
To honour longstanding commitment to young artists and supporting art practice at a time which poses unprecedented challenges, Khoj would like to announce the Khoj Support Grants for early-career artists and creative practitioners.
The grant is intended to help artists stay engaged with their practice and support themselves in the process.
At the end of the grant duration of six months, the artists can choose to either show a final outcome in case of material practice or share their documentation of their process through any medium of their choice – artist’s notebook or audio-visual documentation.
The grant is a bi-monthly (once every 2 months), rolling grant starting through which Khoj supports the ongoing practice of twenty artists with a modest sum of Rs. 25,000/- each.
- All artists who have a demonstrable commitment to practice and have a need for financial support may apply.
- Please note that artists who already have a grant/arts fellowship or support from their galleries are advised to not apply so that the opportunity can be passed on to other creative practitioners.The grant is intended for those who need financial support at this time.
- Please note that an artist, an independent or a collective, can receive the Support Grant only once.
- The Khoj Support Grant is intended for emerging art practitioners within India.Application Materials
