Artists Residency

I not events have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be.
Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today and I’m going to be happy in it.”
- Groucho Marx



Carpe diem Artists Residency is designed to provide the participating artists a clutter-free space (in mind and in geography), nurtured with both the silences of isolation and enriching conversations with fellow artists, inching you closer to your project every passing moment. Here, you are on a journey of looking inward, where you share your thoughts, ideas, and desires with fellow artists to experience a collective sense of freedom. We at Carpe diem strongly believe that the best of your creative instincts can be nurtured when you elevate your experiences in a holistic way.

We intend to take this journey forward with art residencies curated for artists from a plethora of disciplines. The more diverse your experiences are, the more interesting the residencies become. Our objective is to host new and emerging, as well as veteran artists to help them comprehend their creative corridors. Towards the closure of each program, the artists need to arrive upon a certain outcome, essential to their projects.

Though art can be pursued in solitude, we do believe that it solicits the constructive responses of fellow beings with an equal passion for art. Hence to accomplish the goal of creative pursuit we invite writers, film-makers, photographers, painters, musicians etc. across the world to join us at Carpe diem.

We encourage you to comprehend that the final takeaway might be individualistic but the process will be collective, leading each artist to fully explore their inner dimension of art. We would step in as facilitators (not to forget fellow artists) to engage you in intensive workshops, brainstorming sessions and free-flowing conversations helping you inch closer to your projects. We believe that any artistic pursuit is an engaging process and an artist needs to constantly strive to remain connected with his/her own self as well as with nature which constitutes the very fertile ground for any creation.
