ATSA’s flagship programme is a fellowship designed for emerging cultural managers with a focus on theory, professional training and secondment. 15 fellows from a variety of disciplines are selected each year from Afghanistan and South Asia. The fellowship offers a 2 week residential course that includes several intensive modules that are pertinent to the cultural sector and its management. The modules offered in the residential course include strategic planning, cultural policy, marketing, communications, financial planning, fundraising, human resource management and art & law. The modules are supplemented with evening lectures to give the fellows a targeted real world perspective. The faculty is a mix of Indian and international trainers and scholars. Post the residential course, each fellow is offered a fully funded four-week secondment best suited to their professional interests in a cultural organisation in Germany, UK or South Asia during the fellowship year.
ATSA FELLOWSHIP 2018-19
The ARThinkSouthAsia Fellowship is designed to help develop skills, knowledge, networks and experience of potential leaders in the arts and cultural sector of South Asia. We believe that by supporting exceptional individuals to make a step‐change in their skills and career potential, we can bring substantial benefit to the cultural field as a whole.
15 Fellows will be selected from across South Asia.
The Fellowship is fully funded and includes:
- A two‐week residential course in India in May 2018: This includes intensive modules in Strategic Planning, Cultural Policy, Marketing and Communications, Fundraising, HR, and Finance. These modules will be led by a mix of Indian and international professional trainers and academics, and will be supplemented by expert guest lectures. Participation in the residential programme is mandatory.
- A 30-day secondment with a cultural institution in Germany/UK/South Asia over the year 2018-19.
