Program Description

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. KIAR is an opportunity to travel back in time and to relive in history as well as experience natural beauty. KIAR is a month-long residency. There will be Three Residency programs this year. Each period max. 3 applicants will be selected. KIAR also offers 7 days trekking during the residency program as optional. For this year we have selected Langtang valley to Kyanjin Gompa trek and Annapurna Base Camp (ABC). If applicants are interested, they can select one of the trekking program with residency.
