About DakshinaChitra Heritage Museum and Shreya Nagarajan Singh Arts Development Consultancy
The DakshinaChitra Heritage Museum, opened in 1996, is a cultural centre for the art, architecture, crafts and performing arts of South India. A project of the non-governmental organisation the Madras Craft Museum, the main mission of the museum is to exhibit, promote and preserve aspects of the broader, more inclusive cultures of the south Indian states and to bring these arts to the public in a participative, enjoyable and engaging way. Located in Muttukadu, 25 km south of central Chennai, the DakshinaChitra Heritage Museum hosts monthly art and photography exhibitions.
The Shreya Nagarajan Singh Arts Development Consultancy has three main aims. They are to bridge the gap in the Indian arts scene, make art more accessible to a larger audience and provide artists with the recognition and financial support they require. The Chennai-headquartered consultancy, established in 2017, offers a number of services. These include fundraising, strategic planning, sponsorship, artist management, event curation, business model development and festival management. Run for artists by artists with management backgrounds, the Shreya Nagarajan Singh Arts Development Consultancy has a wide network of clients in India, Australia, the Netherlands and the United States.
