FLAME Artists’ Residency

In today’s world, art residencies act like a cocoon for various art practitioners providing them a space away from the pressures and humdrum of everyday life.

When an artist stays in a residency either at an art center, university or any other place s/he is presented with an opportunity to immerse herself/himself into the art practice in a unique environment that is both time and place specific.

The artist can use this time and space to research, reflect and practice either in line with her own thoughts or work around the content and context provided.

Historically, art residencies have sustained through private funding or supported by artist communities. Academic institutions also invite artists to reside on their campus thus providing an environment, a milieu for its community, sensitizing them around art practices and creating dialogues between the artists, teachers and the students.
