About the Organization

India Foundation for the Arts (IFA) is an independent, nationwide, not-for-profit organisation that makes grants and implements projects across research, practice and education in the arts and culture across India, since 1995. We have supported over 750 projects disbursing over Rs 26.65 crore (USD 3.54 million) across the country. The outcomes of these projects—as books, films, performances, exhibitions, games, websites, and archival materials—have been circulating in the public domain through showcases, presentations, seminars, screenings, lecture demonstrations, and festivals, helping widen access and encouraging broader participation in the arts.

About the Proposal  

The Arts Education programme at IFA, Kali Kalisu (‘learn’ and ‘teach’ in Kannada), aims to make ‘learning’ an engaging and joyous experience in schools by using different art forms for curriculum-based teaching pedagogies.

In keeping with this idea, IFA invites project proposals from Government-aided and non-profit schools located in non-metropolitan areas across India that aim to create a solid foundation for arts-integrated teaching pedagogies and encourage curiosity and creativity among students. IFA seeks to implement arts-integrated projects in these schools to strengthen teaching and learning through arts education.

Scope of Work

Some objectives that these projects could address are:

  • Connect local art forms and cultural practices with classroom learning and teaching
  • Integrate arts processes into learning and teaching of all subjects
  • Include lived experiences of the students to classroom learning
  • Work with local artists and resources from the community

Duration: Minimum of one year and a maximum of one year and six months

Budget: Up to a maximum of Rs 4,00,000/- (Rupees Four Lakh)


Government-aided or non-profit schools located in non-metropolitan areas. The institution must work with local languages and believe that arts and culture are integral to teaching and learning.
