IFA organises multiple events across the country to spread awareness about and encourage public engagement with the arts, as well as raise support for our projects. We partner with various cultural institutions to showcase our grants and projects with performances, film screenings and festivals, seminars, and panel discussions at venues in cities and towns.  Our audience, besides scholars, researchers and artists, also comprises students, journalists, business professionals, homemakers, philanthropists and many others who share a deep passion for the arts.

The IFA Open House sessions are part of our ongoing efforts to build connections in the field and make IFA more accessible to varied regional, artistic, and language contexts. At the same time, these sessions build on our attempts to venture into and support relatively unexplored areas in the arts. Several participants at these meetings reach out to us later with project ideas and proposals which we then develop and facilitate.
