About this edition

Through 2020, ATSA organised online sessions for artists and art managers across South Asia to share concerns, offer support, explore possibilities and reimagine new modes of work.

At the beginning of the pandemic, ATSA’s first response was to reach out to Fellows across the region through a series of zoom calls, followed by online sessions in April & May 2020, on topics that emerged from previous conversations.
Four sessions on ‘New Models for Financial Support in the Arts, Reimagining Collaborations, Digital Futures, Mental Well-being’  were led by ATSA Fellows from India, Pakistan & Bangladesh while two sessions on ‘Insertion of New Clauses in Artists’ Contracts due to COVID-19 and Understanding Digital Data Privacy & IPR in the Arts Sector’, featured guests and experts. All sessions were open to arts and cultural practitioners from across South Asia.

In July 2020, ATSA in collaboration with Fellow, Archana Prasad of Jaaga launched, along with the British Council. The alumni management & collaboration tool was built to be used extensively by ATSA Fellows & further strengthen the network.
