It is an Artists run residency program. Because the project is still young, it offers the artists in residency much freedom to create a format, which works for the individual, as well as the possibility to take part in the shaping of the DIFFERENT PROJECTS we are having in pipeline.

Resident artists have 24-hour access to the space, and we encourage the participants to work and be present on site as much as possible during the duration of the residency. When committing to this project, the artist must agree to stay the duration of the term (it is not possible to stay just a few weeks, etc.) Regardless, the participant is responsible for paying the entire participation fee.

We wish that the space be an open environment and welcome visitors to come by to visit during the working process.

Kalanirvana is a very vibrant and energetic Residency, where a lot of importance given to new ideas and approaches. There is a participation fee to be paid by each artist . We also ask the artists to donate 1 – 3 small works (drawings, prints, photographs…) for our Collection and in return we will curate an exhibition for their work at a gallery.

You can expect an intensive time of work and exchange in our cozy creative work space . The exhibition will be seen by a broad audience. You will become part of the KALANIRVANA network including the possibility to participate in future exhibitions organized by KALANIRVANA and an eventual appearance in a future catalog.
