Khel Centre for Creativity & Inner Peace

General information

Brief description of organisation

Khel´s mission for artists is to provide you with a live & work space in Canada´s amazing countryside so that you can have undisturbed time to research, develop and further your creative pursuits. Our residency is situated in 10 acres of nature where you will be a part of a very peaceful and serene environment.

Our residencies are ideal for individuals conducting deep study, working to meet a deadline, or who require temporary workspace.

This is a self-directed, non-instructional program. Participants work independently in our spaces with access to any amenities necessary to further their artistic development. Khel is here to support your artistic endeavours and we welcome those from diverse disciplines especially interested in creating work with, or inspired by Canada and our culture.

Although you will spend your time in nature, you will also have access to Canada´s largest art hub.

Khel is located only 50 minutes from Toronto. We offer free pick up and drop off to the international airport as well as to the city´s public transit - for your creative research.

Brief description of residency program

Khel in the Indian language Hindi, means to "Play".

And while our main focus is here is creativity we have a unique approach to our artist residencies.

Khel is a Creative & Meditative Arts Centre,

We offer the artist a chance to build mindfulness and awareness into their inner and outer practice.

During your stay, and free of charge, you will get to participate in daily meditation sittings, guided walks in nature, thought provoking movies and lectures & practice silence -- all if you choose.

Our goal is quite simple.

"We want people to become conscious creators and help build a strong inner and outer self - for deeper creativity."
