Tiatr Academy of Goa has many schemes formulated for the purpose of discovering dramatic and singing talents from the villages.

The scheme ‘Encouraging Production of Tiatr in Villages’ financially helps the artiste in the villages to the tune of Rs. 20,000/- if the tiatr is produced with the help of artistes from the villages. Besides, TAG provides a director to direct the play. The most important condition is that all the artistes and singers must be the residents of the concerned village.

The 2nd scheme is ‘Encouraging the Promotion of Tiatr Related Activities’. Under this scheme any individuals/associations can stage a tiatr / skits / one act plays / musical shows, etc for which financial assistance to the tune of Rs. 10,000/- is given.

Any individual or institution can take benefit of these schemes only once in a financial year. The performance must be shown to the public free without charging any tickets.
