FARM Studio International Artist Residency’s aim is to provide a rural, community-based open platform where creativity can unfold. Residents stay and create in a unique atmosphere and entirely new environment where they can develop their artwork free from accustomed distractions. Relationships form between the artists coming from different geographical locations and varied social, religious and cultural backgrounds. Here, collaborations and experimentation is encouraged. Many exciting exchanges and dialogues among artists take place. Farm 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. This intercultural exchange broadens everyone’s experiences and fosters art appreciation.

Farm Studio International Artist Residency hosts artists from September to March each year, with accommodations available for up to 6-12 residents at one time.

We are inviting 10 photographers to join us for 10 day workshop from 15th to 25th June 2019; living and working from our modest studio/house in Leh. We are looking for passionate people who use photography as a medium or a message for expression. We will be working closely with each participant in converting an artist concept into physical printed photobook. The workshop will start from the initial concept of converting it into a photo narrative, book designing and finally conclude into a printed photobook/Zine. The photographers can come with an empty palate and create works in Leh to make the photobook or come with an already existing body of photographic works. We are also interested in exploring work around 'found images'.We will help not only in the creative process, but also provide inputs like InDesign feedbacks, book-binding etc. The photographic works can be conceptual or documentary. We also highly encourage converting literature to visual narrative by means of a photo-book.

We will put the participants in 'provocative' areas of social, cultural and political spectrums, to find interesting voices from the cameras. The works can be conceptual or documentary. We will visit very interesting sites of traditional Buddhist art in Ladakh-Saspol & Alchi.

Deadline:

Humans civilisations have grown by coming together of great civilisations. Exchange of cultures have made us grow and understand our world better; when humans from different cultures meet and share lives, barriers are broken. Leh is fortunate to have lived a long history of Silk route trade bringing together Punjabis, Kashmiris, Central Asians, Tibetans and Chinese in this roof of the world. Amidst this sea of travellers, the local population grew and benefitted from the world around. Leh has grown tremendously in last 20 years and tourism has changed the lives of people. While communication has grown, and one can reach Leh under 1 hour from Delhi; today, the multi-cultural ethos of Leh find itself challenged. The division of ‘us’ and ‘them’ is seen evidently and migrants-Kashmiris, North Indians, Nepalis, white or blue collar doesn’t fit in the modern Ladakhi narrative. The migrant working class is unable to find a voice in this new Ladakhi narrative of blue skies and wide lakes, pashminas and heritage buildings which is built on the hard work of themselves.

The second part of the residency is to travel to Turtuk, the last Indian village on the Pakistani border. This special place has changed hands from Pakistan to India in 1971, Pakistanis became Indians. We have traveled many times to this village and understood that people have so many stories to tell! Stories of borders, separations and belongings. We will travel to this oasis looking over the Pakistani mountains, questioning the ideas of nationalism, borders and partition.

Eligibility:

The Artpackers.life Residency Program is based on the idea of exploring and expressing the encounter between traditional and contemporary art and craft practices. It welcomes practitioners of all art forms (visual and performing), architecture and design, in an environment that provides time, space and inspiration.
Focused on experimentation, the principal mandate of this residency program is play – play with concepts, techniques, materials, colour etc. We encourage our artists to make mistakes, use this time to re-establish the link between imagination and actualization, and further develop their practices.

The Alleppey region is very unique as it has access to many local art and craft forms and the residency also aims to support the artist and the craftsmen through a mutual and symbiotic dialogue. Upon request, we can help by sending you a list of local art and craft forms that are ripe for exploration, and also connect the artist with the craftsmen during the course of the residency. Artpackers.life lies in the historically significant town of Alleppey/ or Alappuzha in Malayalam. The city is part of its namesake district Alleppey and is 75km south of Kochi. The property is a short walking distance to the beautiful Alleppey beach. Our building built in the late 1930’s and drawing inspiration from Dutch architecture, is located along the length of the backwater canals among green surroundings.

The location is ideal as it provides a serene and a calm working environment. Elevated wooden ceilings, intricate and traditional wood detailing along with its tiled roof lends an exclusive and innate character to the building. All India Radio used it as a studio for many years and thence as a primary school in recent past; the remnants of both which are still visible. The site has an open yard shaded by a central tree that provides for an excellent platform of an outdoor communal area capable of being used for art installations and activities.

• Presently, Artpackers.life has a capacity of taking up to four on-site artists at a time. We offer shared studio space to artists (up to
two artists per studio). We can provide you with the entire studio if you need for additional fees. Please let us know in advance and we
can check on our availability.
• Each artist will have access to Internet, individual worktable and a modest storage space to keep their belongings.
• Each artist is required to provide details of any additional assistance or materials that they may require during their stay.
• The residency is for a minimum duration of two weeks and maximum duration of three months
• The residency fees include the chosen type of accommodation, shared studio space, Wi-Fi, breakfast, and access to the pantry to prepare
their meals. The applicants may also take advantage of the food made for staff, which is a simple, fresh homely vegetarian fare at
cost.
• During the residency, artists will also have free access to bicycles, available within our premises for their research and exploration
work.
• The Artpackers.life team will be collaborating with each resident artist on documenting and archiving their works to create a database
of ideas and resources.

We can send you a list of local art and craft form easily open for exploration upon request. Additional charges will be applicable for materials

About us:

TATVA is a therapeutic retreat situated in one of the most scenic parts of North Goa in India. Basically the retreat is a big villa built in the Portuguese/Goan style and situated in a quiet and tranquil rural village, which is a farming and fishing community. We are situated on an island with lovely walks all around and many rivers. lakes and rice paddy fields. Our nearest town, which is only 5 minutes away, is called Aldona. It's charming and according to the locals (who are obviously a bit biased!) is the most beautiful village in the world! See - https://www.inditales.com/aldona-goa-beautiful-village-world/

About the residency:

The idea of the residency is to support residents explore themselves and their work; with the goal of empowering them to gain insight into their emotions and their views of the world; plus enable them to express themselves in their chosen creative genre. The residencies are intimate in nature, with between 1 to 6 people attending for 1 to 4 weeks; we also welcome couples and/or partners. We have a basic weekly programme; which includes two or three one to one sessions with a psychotherapist, work sharing/co-creation meetings with local artists (we collaborate with local artists and often take our residents to meet them in their homes/studios; or they come to TATVA to speak with our residents), some group work which takes the form of discussions and peer support in the event that there are other artists staying with us at the same time as you. The retreat has a distinct family atmosphere; which is also a safe space to emote and create. We cook, eat, laugh, discourse and work together; as well as giving each resident the space and privacy they require. There is no requirement on producing any work by the end of your stay; however if artists wish we can also organise local exhibitions for them to showcase their work. A detailed description of the residency can be found if you click on this link . We provide breakfast and either lunch or dinner daily; also we take residents out on excursions to places of interest, depending on what they'd like to see and know more about. There is room both inside and out for artists to create; as we have an attic studio and a big roof top veranda. We also have a garden and many areas and locations of local natural beauty. We advise artists to bring their own materials, as we only have the basics here; however we can help you source most materials in Goa once you arrive if you prefer. Residents also have free time to explore Goa; or just simply relax with the opportunity of immersing themselves in the Goan life. We will take you to areas and events in Goa that most visitors don't see or do; which are picturesque and/or interesting - these include season specific activities such as waterfalls, beaches, interesting cultural events, museums, galleries, heritage sites and architectural Portuguese and Goan gems. We help curate every aspect your stay which entails helping organise additional external activities such as yoga sessions, movement/body work workshops, flora and fauna treks, meditation, massages, wildlife and bird watching, boat trips etc.

David is British and has worked in mental health and emotional well being for over thirty five years in Europe, Africa and Asia; Kripi is Indian and is a counselling psychologist, artist and poet.
