About

FARM Studio was founded to realize the creative potential of exchange, dialogue and collaboration between Indian rural artists and artisans and international contemporary artists. Officially established as a non-profit organization in 2009, FARM Studio grew out of the the rural-based Sowing Seeds Art Project. Locally, FARM Studio promotes and celebrates community artistic and cultural identity, supports community-based activities, and hosts an International Artist Residency. FARM Studio International Artist Residency’s aim is to provide a rural, community-based open platform where creativity can unfold. Residents stay and create in a unique atmosphere and entirely new environment where they can develop their artwork free from accustomed distractions. Relationships form between the artists coming from different geographical locations and varied social, religious and cultural backgrounds. Here, collaborations and experimentation is encouraged.
