Kerala Lalithakala Akademi is starting its first Artist in Residency programme, which is a major leap in the initiatives taken in the State to promote and popularise art and reaching out to more people, apart from providing infrastructure to the artists to express their creativity. Though there are different types of residency programmes by various institutions in India and abroad, this is for the first time that the Akademi is embarking upon such an ambitious project. Since artist studios are very less in Kerala, this will definitely be a boon for the artists here as well as those outside the State, and we have great pride in presenting it before the art fraternity and the society at large.
We are sure your cooperation and association with this project will further strengthen such initiatives, and we look forward to all your support for the success of such ventures.
