Arts for India has signed an Agreement with Shanghai QinheYuzhou Aging Development Foundation, China, who have given US$1.00 million for funding the workshop of 10 Indian students every year for 10 years in China.

The first of these 10-day workshops, ‘ The Sino – India Yuzhou charitable scholarship for Arts programme’, was held in Shanghai in September 2017. Ten students from IIFA had a very successful visit to Shanghai and benefitted immensely from the workshops with master artists who taught them many arts practiced in Chinese style. These workshops will certainly go a long way in enhancing the cultural exchange between India and China.

Arts for india was launched at an event held at the Kensington Palace, London in October 2010
