The issues today : The traditional performers lack the requisite skills for surviving the
contemporary world , not because they lack art/ or acumen but because of – presentation skills, adaptability and public speaking due of lack of exposure and training- (Humor/ vulgarity, blood and gore, lack of animals ,magical/ supernatural powers etc).
This results in endangering both the art and the artists. The artist families are pushed to the margins rendering them vulnerable and at the same time the welfare programs if any are luring them away into unrelated jobs. This proposal is a pilot to understand the specific needs, gaps between the artistic skills / traditional art performances and the market demand, develop programs to bridge these gaps and monitor change in a select group of artists.
