The Delhi government launched a fellowship programme for street performers on Friday to encourage artists in the field of street performance and theatre to promote art and culture in Delhi.The fellowship programme was launched at Delhi Haat in Janakpuri and was attended by Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia.

“This is not a commercial move. If we bring the street art on the roads, it will become a movement. This movement is an effort to soften the edges in people’s lives.Let’s aim to achieve a vibrant environment in our city, by filling it up with street performances. I will again be the Art and Culture Minister if everything goes well after the elections.Everyone should feel happy about the art and culture programmes happening across the city. We should not take it as a hobby, but as a mission.” said Manish Sisodia.
