A belief in promoting the rich legacy of craftsmanship in Odisha is what spurred the erstwhile royal family of Mayurbhanj to open up their home to an artist residency.
The Belgadia Artist Residency aims to support creative development in all areas of the contemporary and traditional art forms and contribute to the overall cultural development and sustainability of the district of Mayurbhanj in Odisha.
The residency is located in a heritage environment, and artists respond to the history and landscape of the region through curated tours, organised workshops and cultural exchanges with the local population.
The residency also aims to provide the opportunity for public access to the artist at work and promotes open studios, talks or workshops as part of an artist’s stay.
Applications are rolling throughout the year, and our inhouse team is happy to curate your stay to make this residency as impactful for you as for the community.
