Emotive Creators ​- Emotional Awareness Artists’ Residency




Emotional Awarenss Artist Residency, Goa

Emotive Creators - Emotional Awareness Artists’ Residency

Goa, India, 25th Oct - 23rd Nov 2017.


3-6 artists (couples accepted) are invited to book India’s first emotional awareness residency to experience a one-month long unique program of creative arts process, personalised mentoring, one-to-one and group support; facilitated by three international highly qualified and experienced professionals specialising in the arts, plus personal and professional self development and empowerment.


We invite you to dwell in the diverse and life-changing Indian/Portuguese state; by coming to stay in a stunning villa with all the required amenities on the island of Corjuem, near the picturesque village of Aldona. You’ll be professionally and personally supported in immersing yourself in Goa’s rich landscape, arts and cultures; plus mingle with some local creative individuals. Unplug your mind, soul, heart and art practice. Enter a journey into the multiple layers of your being; as you are guided by two highly qualified emotional wellness professionals (a psychologists and a psychotherapist) plus a professionally trained awareness curator of distinct practice.


In collaboration with PEPPINA art, TATVA Center is passionate about changing the way we experience ourselves, our lives and art; as we invite visual artists from around the world. Your medium can be as diverse as painting, photography, performance, dance, multi-media, music, filmmaking, design, illustration, writing, theory, poetry, and any other creative disciplinarians. We don’t like to steer artists into any particular artistic thematic direction; therefore we welcome artists who draw inspiration from anything ranging from human rights, philosophy, activism, nature, cultures and the environment.


The uniqueness of this residency will appeal to artists who wish to broaden their practice in a more social and emotional way by exploring theoretical discourses; as a way to become more consciously aware of their interior and their place in the world, thus increasing their overall well-being and creativity.


The artists participating will be part of a small community, joining with the professionals, who will all shape the heart of a wide-ranging and imaginative program to the participants needs. We will explore emotional and social awareness and learn ways in which these can be translated into the art practice, through a combination of experimental workshops, guided mentoring, emotional support and expressive art processes in group and one-to-one frameworks.


The residency offers a safe and comfortable environment for artists to allow for identity exploration, self-expression, emotional and creative processing. By nurturing and supporting the artists in a respectful, ethical and confidential way; the team helps the artists develop an understanding of their meaning and purpose, their role as an artist and how they cope with and reflect on every-day challenges and current affairs.


In a quest to reveal the voice of intuition and promote inspiration, the team will help the artists to facilitate doing things with passion and purpose; plus accumulate a way to not only see, feel and think differently but to change the way we experience life through art.


"The work that's happening here is the most incredible work that I see in the mental health space…..I think that both the process of art making and the process of therapy are linked, and that it's about taking a break from the rest of he world, to check out, and to just explore how I feel.” - Alok Vaid-Menon is a performance artist who spent a week at TATVA Center.


The Residency Program:

  • Creative Arts Process in groups and Personalised Artists Mentoring with Katharina Domscheit-D’souza.
  • One-to-one and group support from Kripi Malviya and David Stanton.
  • Physical and wellbeing activities like nature walks, meditation, yoga and massages.

Artistic Directors Series #008: ESKA


Brighter Sound is delighted to announce an artistic residency with Mercury Prize-nominated singer and multi-instrumentalist ESKA.

Brighter Sound is looking for 15 talented emerging musicians, dancers, filmmakers, photographers, actors, performers and visual artists who embrace creativity and invention to take part in a four-day residency with ESKA from Thursday 25 May to Sunday 28 May inclusive.

The residency will be entitled, “Are You Here?”, and participants will collaborate with ESKA to create and record new music, performance and visuals that will be showcased at Manchester’s iconic music venue Band on the Wall on 28 May.

Zimbabwe-born, London-raised singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist ESKA will lead a four-day residency for 15 emerging musicians, performers and visual artists from across the UK.

ESKA defies categorisation, blending soul, folk-pop, jazz, electronica and blues. Her twenty-year career has taken her around the world, collaborating with artists including Grace Jones, UNKLE and Tony Allen. In 2015, ESKA released her self-titled debut album to rave reviews, earning a Mercury Prize nomination

We asked ESKA to describe what excited her about this opportunity:

“For us, art is not an end in itself … but it is an opportunity for the true perception and criticism of the times we live in.” – Hugo Ball, founder of DADA, 1916.

This is art’s ‘call to arms’! The barometer of success of this process will be how we are able to challenge ourselves and our audience to think…and think again about the current times we are living in. Working across various art forms, I hope this will also be an opportunity for collaboration, to get a different perspective on the role and function of our art, to challenge notions of performance and the role of the audience in response to our creations. If you, like me, are struggling to grasp what’s going on in the world, here is a chance to make a response to that. Excited? So am I.” – ESKA

“It’s the sort of opportunity that money can’t buy… that can give someone the boost they need for stepping on into the next generation of British music” – Bethan Morgan-Williams, previous residency participant.
