Country:

Inviting artist applications for our third edition of the unparraled #therapeuticresidencyforartists

DESCRIPTION AND DURATION OF RESIDENCY PROGRAM
The goal of the residency is to support residents explore themselves and their work; with the aim of empowering them to gain insight into their emotions and their views of the world; thereby enabling 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 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 take the form of discussions and sharing circles 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. 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, wildlife and bird watching, boat trips etc; plus free time to explore Goa themselves or just simply relax with the opportunity of immersing yourself in the Goan life.
