Art Stay - Art Residency & Volunteer Programmes

Curated for budding artists - those looking for mentorship and/or hands-on experience in any creative field For individuals

Collaborating groups of artists ( Age Group 18+)

Art village karjat is set in the backdrop of the western ghats surrounded by nature at a distance of 90 km from Mumbai city. It is tucked away in a 15acre farmland away from the hustle of the fast-paced city life. The village architecture has been designed and executed by Hunnarshala foundation from Bhuj. It has been constructed using the earth building technology, which means the entire project is made of earth construction.

The art village is used as a platform by practicing Artists, Painters, Architects, Ceramists, Yogi’s, Musicians, Theatre groups and writers from all over the world to engage and share their knowledge through workshops, festivals, camps, performances and talks with the world.

The space is designed and cultivated to have people of all artistic as well as non-artistic backgrounds, come together at the village and explore their passion. Everyone individually, or in groups, find their spot at the village - be it in the gallery area, the open amphitheater, the garden center, by the lake, in the adobe earth rooms and even sitting outside on their roof porch.

Activities

  • Pottery
  • Earth Art (with Hunnarshala)

With a senior potter at the village, artists can brainstorm and work on projects they need guidance on. The pre-requisite is that they should have worked with the medium, and have an idea (researced) in mind they wish to execute. Similarly, to explore the material of earth in sculpture, furniture, products and the works, those interested in this exploration can enroll in the earth stay to not only be in a creative space, but also in a stimulating creative process too.
