Munandi Art Studio offers a two weeks minimum, up to 3 months maximum, art residency to upcoming and professional artists. Mostly artists working in contemporary art who want to experiment, research, investigate and study. We have a big space for those artists who have big projects for experiment, architecture and other projects which need big space. We have a mini library for artists who want to research about contemporary art.
And every year we organize a one month art residency to local artists, it’s by invitation about 15 artists take part. During the residency a two weeks workshop is organized and it’s called Harvesting workshop, this is to encourage local artists to work in collaboration unlike the culture of working in isolation. Just to orient them to realize contemporary ideas together.
