About I Believe

An advocacy and fundraising initiative, #ArtMatters is committed to the cause of promoting and preserving art and craft- in partnership with UNESCO, FICCI and ICCR. Since its inception in April, #ArtMatters has been working towards creating awareness about the current reality of various artistes across India, affected by the COVID-19 crisis, and developing support channels for them. Given the large-scale need for financial and policy support in the cultural sector, #ArtMatters is working with multiple partners to produce a fundraising gala by artistes, for artistes called, I Believe #ArtMatters that will help provide much needed support to artistes and artisans, as well as celebrate their craft and tradition by highlighting their stories.
