Past Residential Programmes

Glimpse of residential programmes through partner organisations
In addition to the regular Residency Programme, Sanskriti has had many collaborative projects with institutions from other countries wherein foreign and Indian artists have lived and worked together on specific projects. They often used Indian materials, crafts and skills in exploring common themes and benefited immensely from the international exchanges.
