Artists residency


Santaran feels residency programs will allow to bridge between the thoughts of our main-stream artists and selected artists’ works of folk or marginal arts from home and abroad, which will rather strengthen our field of arts. Out of that realization Santaran offered residency to Mithila artist Shyamasundar Yadav of Nepal in 2008, Patachitra artist Manimala Chitrakar of India in 2009 and Cinema-Banner artist Abdul Hanif (Pappu Ustad) of Bangladesh in 2010, Traditional Thanka painter artist Dorjee Gurung Lama of Nepal 2015, Artist Sharat Kumar Shahoo traditional patachitra painter of Odisha, India in 2019 and artists Prasanta Kumar traditional Palm Leaf engraving artist of Odisha, India in 2019.
