About GLOBAL ARTS VILLAGE UTSAV MANDIR FOUNDATION
Global Arts Village is an emerging multi-cultural residential art center in New Delhi, India. Our programs are based on the ancient Indian principle of Satyam, Shivam, Sundram. We believe that Satyam -- following inner bliss and seeking truth; Shivam -- doing good to the community, self and environment; Sundram -- seeking beauty and sensitivity, guide the manifestation of creative consciousness. In general, one of these qualities is dominant in each individual and if a person develops one, the others will follow. Truth is goodness and goodness is beauty, thus, all three are one. Our programs are meant to create an environment that fosters awareness and enhance your creative process. Our international arts center is unique because it combines artist residencies with Indian traditions such as yoga and meditation in a village community setting. In our 3-acre village, you can walk amongst the tranquil gardens and ponds, see and listen to exotic birds while living and working in artist studios that are an organic blend of contemporary design and traditional bamboo-mud-thatch construction. Creative people of all types including fine artists and craftspeople, designers, architects, writers, art administrators, curators, social development volunteers, researchers and healing art therapists can apply for full or partial fellowships or full fee residency programs. All our fellowships include furnished room, three vegetarian meals per day, self-service laundry facilities, studio or workspace, welcome celebration, work presentation and group exhibition opportunity and other benefits dependent on the fellowship program.
