Eligibility:

Artudio is hosting a year around Artudio International Artist Residency (AIA Residency) program for two multidisciplinary artists which could last anywhere from 1 month to 6 months. As a group of visual art practitioners in Nepal, we intend to create an art space for not just artists, but individuals from all walks of life; for them to reflect on themselves, self-realize, be able to critically think and bring about transformative engagement through contemporary art practices, initiatives, exhibitions, residencies, workshops, and visual arts education. Artudio aims to create a sustainable art ecosystem and uncover the creative potential of its beneficiaries through the support of an extensive network of professional contemporary artists and art communities. As a platform, we intend to give you space and time to dive deeply into your creative processes and projects in an artistic environment.

 

 

WHY:

As an Artist-in-Residence, your participation is designed to be both supportive and inspirational and forges lifelong friendships, professional relationships, and future collaborations to inspire and further develop your practices. We aim to inspire artists to be productive, creative, and interactive since we will be providing you with an opportunity to meet and interact with the extended Nepali art community. We believe that the space we provide is a liberal space with reasonable fees and an opportunity to be exposed to Nepal’s contemporary art scene, and cultural and geographical diversity. 

 

 

WHERE:

We are located on Chhauni hospital road, Kathmandu, Nepal neighboring the Swayambhunath Stupa (one of the oldest historical sights of Kathmandu valley). Our location offers the perfect amount of greenery and easy access to the cities as well. We are not only situated near a UNESCO world heritage site (Swayambunath Stupa) but we are also amidst three notable museums namely, ‘Military Museum’, ‘National Museum of Nepal’, and ‘Natural History Museum of Nepal’. Along with that, popular hiking destinations like Ichangu Narayan and Jamacho from where you can see an impeccable view of the Kathmandu valley are also close by. You can get access to the ring road within 7 minutes of walking. With our location, we allow you to experience the best of both worlds.  

Moreover, Kathmandu Durbar Square (a UNESCO world heritage site), which hosts the old royal palace is only 3.1kms away from where we are situated. Other notable places in our locality include Dharahara, also known as Bhimsen Sthambha, which is situated 2½ km east of Chhauni; Maru, a historic neighborhood and one of the most important cultural spots in Nepal; Thamel, known for its nightlife and is quite popular among tourists; Asan, a ceremonial market and residential square; etc.
