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 -

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.

Who we are:

You may also want to know about the people behind TATVA: The retreat is the home of the two founders of TATVA, David Stanton and Kripi Malviya. 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.

PILOTENKUECHE, Leipzig / Germany

October – December 2019



"PILOTENKUECHE" is an international art program based in Europe's boomtown Leipzig, Germany. The independent project is organized by artists with a transdisciplinary background between art, theory & diverse sciences with the aim to support and boost artistic experience.


The project invites within the “International Residency Program” selected artists from around the world to come and work in the 465m² communally used, fully remodeled space for a period of three months, with 24h studio access. Each accepted artist is offered a partial stipend. We maintain engagements with several partners, and by introducing our artists to these, make it possible for participants to cooperate with and exhibit in other venues. Our concept encourages experimental strategies and embraces a trans-disciplinary ethos, aiming to provide our participants with the experience of accomplishing something collectively. In a group of around eleven international artists working in the space and two local participants participating on our program activities, a stimulating dialogue becomes vital in fostering an independent position in one's work while binding the individuals temporarily within the group, which leads to a long-term network that exists even after the program is over.


Participants receive all documentation necessary to apply for funding and the visa process.

Course fee (£375). The course fee will be paid directly by SWLA.

The remaining £175 will be paid shortly before the course and the applicant can either use this for boat trips (£30/trip, ranging from none to 3 or 4) and/or towards accommodation.

The Rome Scholarship (RBA)





A prestigious scholarship awarded to a young or newly graduated artist, which will offer an enriching learning experience as well as improving their profile as an emerging artist

The Royal Society of British Artists is able to offer this major scholarship as a result of a generous bequest from the late Mr G H Benn in memory of his late wife Marianne Von Werther, a former member of the RBA.

This competition is open to artists who live, work or study in the UK and who are aged 35 years or under and the Scholarship is for the month of September 2019

The Award offers:

Four weeks at Sala Uno, a highly prestigious gallery and international arts centre in the heart of Rome

Accommodation in a self-contained apartment, situated within a wonderful and extensive walled garden in the grounds of the gallery

Studio space which will be available within the gallery

Two meals per day, provided at a nearby restaurant

Return flights to Rome

The work may be painting, drawing, printmaking or sculpture

Six images of recent work to be provided together with a completed application form, see below

An administration fee of £10 is required with the application

Further Awards:

Twenty semi-finalists selected from the entries will have a work shown in the RBA RISING STARS Exhibition.  This will take place at the Royal Over-Seas League in Mayfair, Central London, and will run from April – June 2019.

From these twenty semi-finalists, three finalists will then be invited to an interview.  The finalists will all have one work on show [and on sale] alongside the members at the RBA Annual Exhibition at Mall Galleries in July, and the two runners–up will each receive a prize of £250.  The President of the RBA will announce the winning candidate at the Private View.


Semi-finalists are responsible for the delivery and collection of their own works

It is suggested that large scale works be accompanied by smaller works as, if the artist is chosen as a semi-finalist or finalist, exhibition space will be limited and this may influence selection

It may be helpful for the 3 finalists to bring with them for interview any sketchbooks or journals which show their exploration of techniques or development of their ideas
