The year 2020 witnessed a profound impact on the arts and culture industry in India, as the global pandemic brought about a substantial decline in the livelihoods associated with art and craft. Artists and creators all over India saw their careers halted and income plummeted. The closure of galleries, exhibitions, museums, theaters, cinemas, and culture festivals had a dramatic effect on their ability to recover. Many stakeholders in the arts sector were forced to make multiple labor cuts as well as sell their assets. The loss of income in publishing and culture venues, has had a deep and lasting impact. To ensure the continuity of traditional practices and preservation of classical art forms, it is imperative to redirect attention towards their promotion and long-term sustainability'. To achieve this goal, Sanrachna Foundation in partnership with Indira Gandhi National Center of Arts (IGNCA), and Shree Guru Gobind Singh Tricentenary University (SGTU), is hosting a symposium on 4 th August, along with our co-organizers Mentza, The Indian Intellectual Property Office, DPIIT - IPR Chair, Tezpur University.
Registration form will be shared soon along with Mentza link.
