COVID – 19 Artists Fund
Over the last one year, the pandemic has disrupted the lives of artists and artisans across India. With almost no financial income over the last year, the second wave of the COVID 19 pandemic in India is proving to be disastrous for the artist community with little or no financial aid.
Since March 2020, Sumansa Foundation has been running a COVID-19 Artist Fund that reaches out to artists and artisans in need of financial support. We have so far distributed 1.05 crore rupees to over 3000 artists representing over 250 art forms. This has been a pan India effort, spanning over 22 states and 2 union territories. We have been fortunate to receive donations from over 1300 people across the globe, and look forward to being able to reach out to many more artists across the country.
Initiatives like these are the need of the hour, and we urge you to come forward and donate to our campaign, where 100% of the contributions will go towards helping artists and artisans tide of these uncertain and difficult times.
We thank you for all your support until now and look forward to your continued support in our endaevour. Please do contribute to our campaign!
