Sanskriti Kendra Residency In India

The Sanskriti Kendra Residency is a six-week program in India, at a retreat on the outskirts of New Delhi offering artists from diverse cultures the opportunity to reflect, interact and create.

The residency program offers artists total immersion in Indian culture in an environment that supports and encourages their artistic practice. Artists from around the world coexist with Indian artisans and contemporary Indian artists in an environment that aims to enrich and strengthen the bonds of shared cultural experiences and to encourage the fruition of individual creative endeavour. Sanskriti’s studio facilities are suited to printmakers, ceramicists and sculptors, two-dimensional artists and jewellers.

This international placement is open to graduates of the Helpmann Academy’s visual arts partner schools (up to five years out from graduation).
