What does Chowk Productions Ltd do?

Chowk Productions Ltd is a charity organization that has been dedicated to transforming traditional Indian dance for Singapore's transcultural practitioners and audiences since 2007. They have fostered an ecology for local and regional artistic talent across various disciplines, including dance, theatre, music, and artistic research. As a charity organization, they uphold strong administrative standards to support the indie arts scene in Singapore. However, due to recent declined grant applications, Chowk Productions is now facing closure without immediate financial assistance from their patrons and students. They are currently raising funds to sustain operations until June 2019 or longer through the generosity of supporters who believe in supporting indie arts in Singapore.
