As a young BIENNALE we are still getting funding bodies and sponsors into place and our team works through the year to find people who might be willing to partner with us on the same. We only cover the cost of the accommodation, venue rental, technicals (light and sound) and technical crew, publicity and marketing for your work as a part of Odisha Biennale 2015. We are not able to provide for the international / domestic travel and freight expenses to get you to India for the performance. We strongly advise to apply to your local art funding bodies to cover the expenses. Should you require a letter of support after your selection for the festival, feel free to contact us for any assistance.

We will do our best to guide you through the entire process and should you have any queries/ issues with the submission form, please feel free to contact us at odishabiennale (at)
