Young Artiste 2020 is a scholarship program for school children across India in the Classical and Contemporary Arts. The ethos of the program is to promote the Arts for the Indian Youth, to provide an equal platform to all students where they can express their artistic talents and stand a chance to receive accreditation, scholarship grants and recognition for their skills. The philosophy behind Young Artiste is to celebrate each art-form in a very distinct manner; by creating a space where every single discipline will have its own jury, specialised themes, explicitly crafted evaluation metrics etc. The first edition of Young Artiste will include twenty distinct categories, a mix of art-forms: instrumental, vocal and dance; in both the Classical and the Contemporary schools.
With the vision to make the program thorough and intensive, Young Artiste has teamed up with the Nation’s leading experts in each discipline. Our panel of experts is composed of a splendid troupe of dancers, performers, gurus, musicians and maestros, whose guidance and expertise have made it possible for us to design a rich and unique experience for category.
SIFF Young Artiste wishes to award and encourage as many students as possible and hence, will be conferring over a 100 scholarships and several certificates across all twenty categories. Our aim is to find and celebrate exceptional student talent and to nurture them in their journey through the Arts.
