Kala Kalyana: A Social Security / Welfare Scheme for Artists

Petitioning Government of India
Ministry of Culture - Government of India: Social Security scheme for Indian artists


Sign this Petition

Presently, there are systems of support for artists like awards, fellowships, pensions (administered by the state and central Governments), aid to individuals and organisations but none of the above systems offer a comprehensive social security module in which artists are not just beneficiaries, but active premium-holders.

In order to address this lacunae, India Theatre Forum, an independent network of theatre practitioners, has developed a social security module. Named Kala Kalyana, this is a project initiated to develop a participatory Insurance scheme for artists and their dependents to provide security against ill health, accidents, infirmity, death and old age.

Please join us in petitioning the Indian Government to ideate and implement this social security scheme for Indian artistes.
