The Qs, an initiative of Aalaap.

Aalaap is a 5year old arts consulting & management company based in Chennai. Conceptualised and started by Akhila Krishnamurthy, a journalist with a work experience of over 15 years with various publications like The Times of India, India today, The Hindu etc., Aalaap is a pioneering initiative to collaborate with performing artistes, particularly those in the world of the classical. Since its inception in 2013, Aalaap has worked with artistes from across India, and the world, across aspects of content, curation, design, marketing, public relations and event management.

The Qs, an initiative of Aalaap, is yet another editorial dimension of Aalaap's eclectic personality. Inspired by the idea of straight talking with artistes across genres music, dance, theatre and cinema - The Qs is an attempt to record and transcribe the words of artistes, as they say it, allowing us, readers, to discover a dimension of themselves on aspects of the arts, and of life.

The first edition of The Qs featured none other than our very own Oscar winner A R Rahman. Ever since we have featured an array of artistes from T M Krishna to Vidya Balan, from Karthick iyer to Leela Samson, from Devdutt Pattanaik to Konkana Sen and more.

The Qs completed one year this July and until now it has been a self funded initiative. We are looking for sponsors to help us keep this wonderful initiative alive so that we, together, could delve into the minds of many more amazing artistes from across the country
and around the world.

This campaign has been an eye opener. It has really helped us to reach out to people for support and many of you have come forward and done your bit. Thanks a lot. The funds collected have been useful in taking care of the expenses that we have incurred for The Qs for a couple of months definitely. The funds will be used to pay our designer, our editorial team and the tech team who run and maintain the page.
