Kalakhetra International Artist Residency, Raghurajpur

Kalakhetra International Artist’s Residency KIAR (Perform Odisha) at Raghurajpur is an interactive and immersive program where artists live along side village artists/craft people. During the residency artists will have the opportunity to learn a variety of arts and crafts in the form of Patachitra, Tassar Painting, Palm Leaf Engraving, Paper Mache, Cow dung Toys, Dhokara (Brass Casting), Stone Carving, Wood Carving, Patch Work (Modern Applique), Ganjapa playing Cards, Coir Toys and Teracotta. There is also shared studio space for artists to make their own work outside of the offered workshops/programs.

Living in the village gives artists direct access to many of the rich and inspiring cultural events which occur throughout Raghurajpur. Artists will see Idols being built and enjoy the celebrations, can take part in community meals and can enjoy dancing along with interactions in other community programs.
