‘365 Haridwar’ is an international artist residency programme located inside a century old cluster of an Indian reformist tradition. 365 Haridwar aims to bring together ancient & future, global & local, and art & spirituality.

Artistic parents desirous of encouraging their children for liberal arts are invited as a family (2 – 4 persons). Children can immerse in typical Indian culture that will enrich their understanding. Parents will get to re-visit their own creativities.

The environmental pollution in Delhi and Indian metro cities impacts a 100 km radius. Though fog in north India is a natural welcome phenomenon, in cities during winter, it lingers 24 hours a day and for many weeks. At Haridwar, it is still natural – few hours a day for couple of weeks – and thus enjoyable.

Ganges flows about 100 m away from AZIMVTH. Rajaji National Park (with elephants, leopards etc.) in Himalayas is 4 km away.
