d.r.i.f.t Fundraising

At d.r.i.f.t. our mission is: to bring people together through theatre, and to make the arts accessible in the Dharamshala region. For many of the children and adults we work with, this is their first experience of the magic of live theatre and the beautiful solidarities that come through engaging with the arts.


This is an entirely volunteer-run program and we all work through the year for free.


We do this because we believe in the importance of theatre as an art. Our calendar of activities includes workshops, residencies, outreach programmes, performances and public readings, as well a unique annual theatre festival every March with local and international performances. These varied opportunities for the local community have already started bearing fruit, with original work being created by upcoming local artists, and artistic ties being forged between people from varied communities and backgrounds.


Of course, all of this requires commitment from volunteers and collaborators, but also monetary resources that will allow us to invite artists from around the world, organise the festival and to run our programmes.

Our annual target is to raise Rs. 12 LAKHS to run our free outreach programmes, workshopsresidencies and our annual theatre festival. We need you to contribute towards building this. All we need are 200 donors who pledge to 6,000 INR per year, that is, 500 INR per month.

We welcome all donations, but your pledge to become an annual donor will ensure that we can do even better what we do best – bring people together through theatre!


So step up people! Pledge to support us!
