Description of residency program
PECAH is an art residency that will give you the opportunity, through workshops, to learn about traditional Indian art forms such as aipan, pattachitra, cow dung painting, folk music, folk danse, etc. You will learn from local artist and exchange with them. This is a group residency, which means that you will get to share your view on art with artists from all over the world; it is also an opportunity to create links with them that can last a lifetime! At PECAH, we promote international friendship and collaboration in between the artists, believing that working together, sharing opportunities as well, can enrich one artist's work and career.
PECAH has the perfect location: facing the Himalayas, you get a breath-taking view everyday of your stay - it is truly inspirational, whether you are a painter, a photographer, a musician, a writer, etc. It is also the opportunity to learn more about India in a real quiet context, which can be a great contrast with the constant noise of the big Indian cities.
Come to PECAH not only to travel and see art behind a glass in a museum: learn to make it, look at it from close and truly immerse yourself in this beautiful adventure!
