About this programme

The ongoing global health crisis has ruptured the functioning of both individuals and institutions. At this difficult time, Khoj International Artists’ Association is invested in identifying and responding to the needs of the primary communities it serves.

To honour our longstanding commitment to young artists and supporting art practice at a time which poses unprecedented challenges, Khoj announced the Khoj Support Grant 2020 for early-career artists and creative practitioners. The grant is a bi-monthly (once every 2 months), rolling grant starting June 2020 through which Khoj will support the ongoing practice of twenty artists with a modest sum of Rs. 25,000/- each.

The grant is intended to help artists stay engaged with their practice and support themselves in the process. At the end of the grant duration of six months, the artists can choose to either show a final outcome in case of material practice or share their documentation of their process through any medium of their choice – artist’s notebook or audio-visual documentation.

Khoj received close to 400 applications! Due to the overwhelming response, we have decided to club the first two rounds of the grant to support 40 artists in this cycle.
