The project economically independent artists aims to support artists. While India has been home to several art forms, many of the art forms have been lost. Several art forms are at the beink of extinction as it is difficult for artists to sustain the art. This projects want to step in to help artists practise art while sustaining a means of livelihood. 

 The project will be launched in the presence of dignitaries and celebrities. It will support artists who are engaged in the pocket movement — an initiative which is gaining momentum. It is a movement for gender equality. The council will support 17-year-old Taarini Saraf who is a supporter of the pocket movement as a part of this. The council has arranged a range of other activities as a part of the celebrations.
