Arpanaa ‒ Offering one's art to the Divine
Arpanaa - an existing facility (under City Services) has been started with the aim of supporting artists from outside Auroville in performing at the public venues in Auroville. Joy and Tejaswini were managing and coordinating this facility for last 6 years.
This is now handed over to new coordinators: Geeta (Creativity) and Mona (Yantra). An announcement for new coordinators was made in News & Notes in the month April. This activity is carried out on a fully voluntary basis.
Arpanaa provides a financial and organizational support for performing artists from outside Auroville in offering a cultural performance to the community. The support includes organizational help in setting up the performance at a chosen Auroville venue and provision for covering costs of necessary technical stage support, transportation to the venue as well as provision for basic refreshments. Artist remuneration and expenses for travel is not covered.
Interested artists may either be suggested to Arpanaa by Aurovilians knowing the artist or the artist may directly apply by e-mail to: arpanaa (at) auroville.org.in
