‘The Art of the Possible’ is a first-of-its-kind, primary research led study in India that looks at the transversal and technical skills landscape in the live entertainment and performing arts domains from the perspective of working professionals and sector stakeholders.

Commissioned by the National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA), the study is aimed not only to provide insights and recommendations to the NCPA to develop a course centred on transversal skills in design and technical production of performing arts, but also to chart out the landscape, challenges, and growth trajectories of cultural professionals with technical and transversal skills in India. The study identifies specific upskilling challenges and training requirements within the cultural sector, while mapping existing gaps, skilling needs, and barriers to the entry of professionals into the sector.

The online report launch will spotlight key findings from the study and have experts discuss the report’s insights, while scoping a way forward for collaborations among stakeholders. Through the implications and recommendations put forth within the report, this discussion will carry forward the conversation on the sector’s pressing needs.
