The Fellows

Meet our Choreography and Research Fellows

The Aseemkala Initiative aims to provide a platform for ideas, dialogue, and creativity using traditional arts and dance to address issues of health inequity in healthcare. We are proud to introduce our fellows of both choreography and research to our team each year. Each fellow uses the year to cultivate a project of their choosing, with support from our board of directors after a rigorous selection process. Please meet our exciting fellows for this year below. Questions on our fellowship can be answered here.
