Helpmann Academy Artist Residency at Sanskriti Kendra

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 visual artists, up to five years following their final year of study from the Helpmann Academy’s partner institutions.

“Being selected to participate in the Sanskriti Kendra Residency has been the most incredible opportunity to have the space to reflect, explore and develop my creative practice while being immersed within such a vibrant culture. I am so grateful for this experience which has been a turning point for me both personally and professionally by clarifying strong pathways to create an art career that is diverse, fulfilling and inspiring.
