About this opportunity

The IARTS Textiles of India Grant supports a project on Indian textile arts. This biennial grant of CAD 15,000 can be used anywhere in the world by anyone in the world toward a project that enhances knowledge about Indian textiles, dresses, or costumes. Applicants can include scholars, curators, educators, community leaders, artists, and enthusiasts. Projects can be research-based or creative and must further the preservation, documentation, encouragement, improvement, interpretation, or revival of Indian textile arts towards enhancing a critical awareness about their history and/or future. Through the support of such activities, the grant is meant to encourage cultural understanding, institutional collaboration, and public engagement.


The award has two components:

  • A project on Indian textiles can include research in any institution or collection, fieldwork, apprenticeship, revival activities, creative work, or interpretation. Maximum of CAD 15,000
  • A public program related to the project presented in Toronto, Canada, or online at the end of the award period, which can include a lecture or workshop, a publication, an online exhibition or resource, an installation, a performance, or any combination of these. A maximum of $7000 is available for this part, which is separate from the CAD 15,000 grant.


The award can be made to a person or a group of people. It is open to residents of any country, 18 years and older.
