India Foundation for the Arts (IFA) invites project proposals for arts education from government school teachers in Karnataka, for their schools. This call for applications falls under the Kali-Kalisu initiative that aims to forge collaborations between teachers, local artists, and the school community.
The purpose of these grants is to encourage teachers to look beyond their subject teaching and explore the possibilities in arts education, create opportunities for teachers and artists across disciplines, to become joint stakeholders in the school community, and enrich curriculum and classroom teaching, through artistic interventions. We hope the grants will set in motion processes that will continue beyond the grant period.
