Kala Vandanam launches
Fundraiser for artistes
April 29, 2020
Suchitra Sairam's Kala Vandanam has launched "ARTS INTERRUPTED - Supporting artists affected by the COVID-19 pandemic" - a fundraiser to support artists impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Artists are indeed the heartbeat of our communities. They serve on the front lines of serving the hearts and minds of the world, one community at a time. In a small effort to raise funds for organizations supporting artists in need at this time, Kala Vandanam brings to you a series wearable art "Heartbeat of a...." - original designs honoring the passion of dancers and percussionists practicing Indian performing arts.
Says Suchitra Sairam:
"It is our effort to be of service and support the many communities we are lucky to be a part of, a small way for us to show how we value the contributions that artists bring.
PROCEEDS raised will support organizations that are providing emergency relief funding to individual artists requiring funding for personal emergencies and artists serving community emergencies, including Springboard for the Arts, Samarpana Foundation and Sumanasa Foundation. These organizations will distribute the funds based on their criteria. We would be happy to support other organizations as well.
T-SHIRTS are $18 each, with a MINIMUM or $9 per shirt being donated to organizations supporting artists. The more sold, the higher the contribution! Additionally, all donations above any beyond will go to supporting artists (minus credit card fees). All of the effort put into this campaign has been done pro-bono, in service to artists and our community."
