Studio Dragonfly

Studio Dragonfly

Ceramic and painting residency


Studio Dragonfly wishes to support cultural exchange and collaborative ventures; as well as allowing an artist time to spend reviewing his or her practice. The members of the core team are practicing artists themselves and understand the need of an artist to take time out periodically to enrich ones own practice. This residency hopes to provide that conducive space.

The artist is free to use the residency time the way he or she wishes, as long as the resources are not abused. The residency is situated in the cultural city of Baroda, which has over 1000 practicing artists residing there. The city has art college, galleries and community art studios.


The organizers do not expect the artist to have a specific outcome, unless he or she is spending more than 6 weeks at the residency. Even then, what they hope is that there will be interaction with local artists, some presentations and optimum use of the resources provided. They will be happy to organise an open studio or an exhibition/ show if the proposal requires in case of a longer residency period.
