The AAA–Inlaks Art Grant is dedicated to supporting innovative approaches to practising art today. The grant encourages artists to propose and test new forms of art-making that incorporate research, collaboration, workshops, and formal experiments to examine the technologies and ecosystems of information that shape our times.
The Inlaks Shivdasani Foundation was established by Indoo Shivdasani in 1976 as a permanent platform for his philanthropic activities. The foundation focuses on providing scholarships, grants, and awards in any field to outstanding young Indians to develop their professional, scientific, artistic, and cultural abilities.

Drawing on ideas and practices that shaped modern theatre, theatre production, and acting techniques, her project will explore how new collective identities were formed (and performed) in the erstwhile Bengal and Bombay Presidency.
