Get involved. 
Be a part of this artist driven initiative.

As an artist-led and funded initiative, Goa Open Arts relies on the generous support and involvement of patrons and art lovers to keep it a viable effort.


We received tremendous support from corporates as well as individuals for the first edition of the Goa Open Arts festival, 2020. Our Catalyst Grant 2020 for Media Arts was supported by the Goethe-Institut, Max Mueller Bhavan, Mumbai and the exhibition "Retellings" that followed in February 2021 was hosted and supported by Sunaparanta Centre for the Arts, Goa. The Catalyst Grant 2021 for lens based art has been supported by Nazar Foundation.


Our funds are deployed carefully and thoughtfully so that we can maximise benefits to the artists we promote. While Goa Open Arts is a non-commercial initiative, sales are encouraged with proceeds benefiting the artists, the operation of the initiative, and the community.



We would like to invite you to make a donation or support the initiative in any other way so that we can continue to promote the arts in Goa through grants, mentorship programmes and public exhibitions, all of which go a long way towards invigorating the creative community in Goa.


All supporters will be credited on our website so please do send in your name, unless you wish to remain anonymous.
