Artist residency

Hansaram is currently inviting select artists and activists to become pilot residents of the gallery and residency building in 2023 and 2024. Artists are invited to the residency for recuperation, rest and work.

Our process for the residency program is by invitation and Hansaram partner agency referrals only. The process involves an interview process, along with conversations and agreements on funding, thematic and length of program.
