ARTIST HELP SUPPORT AID FOR SURVIVAL OF COVID -19 Impact INDIA

Hello, we are Sasha & Sumeet Nagdev, founders of www.snda.in
A few weeks back an artist friend of ours tried to commit suicide and it made us realise something very important.
Due to the corona virus pandemic, Artists world over are suffering. Theatres are closed, arts venues are closed, educational institutes are closed and every place where artists share their art is closed. Recently the most coveted circus company cirque du soleil filed for bankruptcy. The worlds biggest broadway show Hamilton will not have enough funds to support their massive cast and crew in sometime. Now imagine if such world renowned companies are struggling then what about upcoming and young freelance artists, tribal artists, village artists or even street artists, who live for those recurring opportunities every week or every month. We live in India and In India some folk artists have already stopped practising their art and have taken up labour jobs to support their livelihood. Many are struggling with depression because they arent able to see a clear future for themselves. But why is Art so essential and why must we the visitors of Earth save art in one of the most difficult times the Earth has faced.
Because Art gives you purpose. Imagine a day where you can’t see color where you can’t hear or sing a song let alone dance to it, where you can’t enjoy a monologue or play with words and have a fun conversation. Where the idea of film or tv does not exist, where you just have no artistic creation. You see there is no Earth then, cause Earth itself is a creation. Thats why it is rightly said Earth without Art - EH!
We play music when we want our children to be happy. We are singing to forget our worries. Doctors & police, are dancing to relieve stress. We aren’t feeling that time has slowed down cause artists are constantly entertaining you, laughing with you, crying with you and staying with you. So art is ESSEntial. Art is probably the reason we need to win from covid-19 . So when covid-19 is over we can celebrate and live through the arts.
We need the arts and hence we need the artists to survive. In these testing times we do know some of few are saving up and some of you are generous enough for donating to the welfare of the patients of covid-19. We thank you for that. But if you think you have some more to spare then please donate to save the arts. We have created a trust called Project AHSAS and all of the funds collected shall be utilized to help any and all artists with basic necessities such as food and housing rent who are struggling to survive this pandemic. We can use this fund only for artists in India although Please share this message to all those who may have some funds to donate to the arts either through our forum or any other way possible. Every drop counts and we will must fill up the ocean of artists again.

If you are an artist then please fill this form https://forms.gle/dpUorgTqiDtKpELY7
and we can try to help you with this fund collected. Please share this message with donors and artists in need both.
