IFA is an independent, professionally managed grant-making organisation, set up in 1993 and headquartered in Bangalore.
We support writers, dancers, film-makers, musicians, theatre directors, sculptors, photographers, curators and researchers from across the country. IFA's grants support all forms of cultural expression, while accommodating work that falls outside specific domains of art, blurs disciplinary boundaries or anticipates new modes of artistic production and presentation. IFA makes grants to individuals and organizations with the aim of filling important gaps in private and public assistance for culture and the arts in India. Our grant programmes variously respond to existing demand for assistance, provide opportunities for artists to explore untried processes and new connections in the arts, or address systemic issues in the field.
