COVID-19 Artists Fund: Support Marginalized Artists

Tax benefits
Margazhi Manch - An online performing arts festival in support of arts, artistes & communities 
We are extremely excited to present Sumanasa Foundation’s Margazhi Manch, an unique online platform that presents diverse art traditions, many of which remain outside the digital economy and the December music season. This time of the year has largely been associated with ‘classical’ artforms. Margazhi Manch is an effort to include all artforms in this new virtual Manch (platform) and make Chennai’s music season diverse and inclusive.
Please do support the artists by making a contribution to this ongoing campaign. Supporters will receive an email with access and details to view the festival. 100% of the proceeds will go towards supporting more artists and artisans affected by this pandemic. Thank you and keep supporting Sumanasa Foundation.


COVID Artists Fund
Thousands of artists in India are struggling financially due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Art performances in small towns, urban spaces, villages and temples have completely stopped and artists do not have their primary source of income. The COVID Artists Fund supports artists who have been immensely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic through direct cash transfers to their respective accounts. 100% of your contributions will reach the artists.
 

Online Performing Arts Festival
We conducted an online festival between 10th June 2020 to 14th June 2020 which showcased diverse performing art traditions of India, many of which still remain outside the digital economy. We believe that it is important to cultivate an ecosystem where we can appreciate and pay for all art, and as a step towards this, only donors received access to view the festival. Due to the overwhelming support we received, we are keeping this campaign open to help continue the work to support the many artists still in need.
