Summary of Artists’ Projects

We select only those artists whose arts have some connection to spirituality. Due to the specific nature of our residencies we are particular about the artists. During the recent one-and-half years (July 2017 to December 2018), about 125 artists from the West have approached us. Only about 20 of these have been selected by us and can be considered to have completed the residency process.
