Program Description

KIAR is a significant hub in the field of contemporary art both locally and internationally. The goal of the KIAR is to create an intellectual space where the residents will get the chance to penetrate the local cultural and socio-political contexts, as well as to combine their artistic practices (research, production, etc.) with meetings, lectures, and other discursive events with local and international artists, cultural experts, critics, and curators. Kathmandu is surrounded by a valley full of historic sites, ancient temples, shrines, and fascinating villages. KIAR is an opportunity to travel back in time and to relive in the history as well as experience natural beauty. It is a month long residency. There will be five Residency programs this year. Each time max. 3 applicants will be selected. If participants are interested, KIAR will arrange 7 days trekking during the residency program. But participants will be responsible for all expenses for Trekking.
