Artist’s Residency at Visthar

The Artist’s Residency is a new initiative of Visthar and is open to  visual artists, writers, performers, designers and other creative individuals worldwide.  COVID19 lockdown made us so conscious of the need to be connected with nature and with each other in an organic way. Many friends are struggling to deal with the distancing demanded by the pandemic.  The residency is designed to give artists and writers  the time, space, and inspiration to focus on their creative pursuits.

The Residency will host 10 writers/ artists each year from across the country and around the world. The Residency includes:

  • Bath attached private rooms and meals
  • Access to the library and the campus
  • WIFI enabled green and serene indoor and outdoor workspaces
  • Opportunities for eco-therapy including gardening, paper recycling and eco art
  • A platform  to present your writing / exhibit your art
  • Monthly conversations with writers and artistes from Bangalore
  • Complete solitude without being part of any of the above activities
