We thank you for being here with an interest in '365 Haridwar' the international artist residency of AZIMVTH Ashram, on the banks of Ganges and foothills of Himalayas at Haridwar in northern India.
This Application Form is for Physical Residencies -- artists travel to Haridwar. The form is available at the following weblink -https://forms.gle/6bSdDVwJMD8Axdwu6
More information on residencies is here -https://azimvth.org/residencies-programmes/
Physical Residencies are self-directed. Artists typically complete one major and more minor art projects. We work pro-actively with artists for planning and execution of their ideas. Some examples of the projects and artworks recently accomplished by some Artists-in-Residence at AZIMVTH can be seen here -https://azimvth.org/2018/11/24/summary-of-artists-projects/
Our residencies are focused upon spiritual aspects of all art-forms and creative pursuits. We let artists discover and explore their own interpretations of being spiritual.
We prefer the places to be filled 7 months before the start date of a residency. However, due to specific nature of the residencies, less than 15% of the artists who express an initial interest with us are actually able to finally reach to the completion of their residencies with us. For a relevant application, a place can be made available even at the last minute. Thus, applications are accepted round the year.
The residency fee includes housing, all meals, use of studio spaces, and Yoga & meditation training. The fee does not include art supplies and materials, insurance, and any medical expenses.
There is no application fee.
We usually complete review of an application in a week's time. At times, it may take up to 4 weeks also. In case of approval, an acceptance letter is sent to the artist.
The information submitted by you is completely private and confidential.
Your queries, if any, are welcomed through e-mail at AZIMVTH@gmail.com
