As an arts and culture manager and researcher, Tanya Dutt has lived and worked in Japan, Italy, Cambodia, Australia, the UK and remote parts of India. She focuses on sustainable arts regeneration and CCI management that transgresses conventional strategy and transforms challenges into meaningful outcomes. This earned her the 2017 ATSA Fellowship and the South-South Arts Fellowship in 2022. Mapping and ecosystem research of the culture sector and arts management in South Asia and beyond aids her in knowledge production and exchange for fellow professionals, which in turn advocate holistic policy-making. In her free time and to sustain her socially-engaged art practice, Tanya loves to write, giving personal expression to art that creates change within. Recently, Tanya is also an editorial consultant for TAKE on Art magazine.
