The Residency

SHILPAYAN Studio International Artist Residency’s aim is to provide a Natural, Harmony-based open platform where creativity can unfold. Residents stay, create & bond in a unique atmosphere and entirely new environment where they can develop their artwork, free from accustomed distractions. Here, collaboration and experimentation is encouraged. Many exciting exchanges and dialogues among artists, artisans, architects are encouraged. Shilpayan Studio also promotes and celebrates the local community’s artistic and cultural identity while also introducing art and culture of others (Indian and International guests) back to the community.
