Carpe Diem Residency
Carpe diem Residency is a non-profit organisation, founded by awarded independent filmmaker Shivajee Chandrabhushan. The team of Carpe diem consists of other curators who are into creative writing, art education and filmmaking. The hosts are committed to the cause of enhancing artistic experiences globally and have thus started this residency. As facilitators, they engage the artists in intensive workshops and thought-provoking conversations to pursue cross-cultural art and trans-media storytelling.
Description of the residency programme:
Carpe diem residency, a series of artist-in-residence programs is designed to invite artists, writers and film makers for a time and space away from their usual social environment and domestic obligations. The idea behind the program is to facilitate a stimulating eco-system or co-inhabiting space for artists to participate, research, produce and reflect on an emerging body of work. It allows a fellow artist to explore his/her practice within another community of artists; meeting new people, using new materials and experiencing life organically in a new location. The hosts believe that best of our creative instincts can be nurtured when we elevate our experiences in a holistic way.
The hosts feel the final takeaway might be individualistic for each participant but the process will be collective, leading each artist to fully explore their inner dimension of art. The hosts would step in as facilitators (not to forget fellow artists) to engage you in intensive workshops, brainstorming sessions and free-flowing conversations helping you inch closer to your projects.
As a part of the residency each participant will need to hold a workshop/talk for the fellow participants about their field of work.
Individual Cottages on twin sharing basis with attached bathroom.
