India | Sowing Seeds Artists Village Residency



Visual and performing artists and art critics are invited to apply for the Sowing Seeds Artist Village Residency in Rajasthan - a 14 day collaborative residency (20 Dec 2015 - 2 Jan 2016) in a rural context, creating work focused on environment and social development.

“Sowing Seeds” is a project that intends to create dialogues and exchanges amongst artists beyond their national identity and serves as an opportunity for rural artists to meet, share and exchange ideas, visions, and diverse views in order to create a deeper understanding of art. It acts as a social environment developing and improving the artistic impressions of experts as well as emerging artists. As an alternative art space in INDIA, “Sowing Seeds” is geared to exchange the challenges required to organize such a contemporary artist village residency within rural areas and thus giving rise to a new era in art.


Visual artists, performing artists, art critics and local community will collaborate to create work about environment and social development in rural Rajasthan (INDIA). There will be opportunities for collaborative work that interacts with the rural environment.

The key to our Artist residency projects will be creating local community collaboration to create works related to environment and social development in the village of Rajasthan (INDIA)

The artist residency will bring together 15 international artists practicing in a wide variety of media, collaboration, outdoor sculpture, documentation, or performing to bring benefit to a specific site and share ideas and methods for a period of 14 days in the village of Rajasthan (INDIA).

The artists residency will provide the selected artists with full lodging and food, work space, local transportation and a small material stipend.  NOTE: no grants are offered for international transport.
