Round 1 of the 21/22 Arts and Cultural Funding Program is open for applications – and what better way to encourage NSW artists, arts and cultural workers and organisations to apply for funding – than to showcase the diversity of funding recipients from previous years.

Raghav Handa is an Australian choreographer and performer of Indian heritage – trained in modern and Indigenous contemporary dance. Raghav received $39,827 in funding through the 2020/21 Arts and Cultural Funding Program’s Individual Projects category to create TWO – a new dance work in collaboration with internationally recognised Tabla-master, Maharshi Raval.

The work was produced by Performing Lines and premiered as part of FORM Dance Projects’ 2021 season at Parramatta Riverside and will tour to the OzAsia Festival in Adelaide later this year.

Raghav Handa says, “Creativity takes courage. Dance provokes the imagination and encourages our society to go further. Investment in our artists means a brave future for all.

Applications for Individual Project funding close on Wednesday 18 August at 5pm AEST.
