General information

Brief description of organisation

Studio Dragonfly is a creative collaborative where artists, writer, architect and designers have come together to work on projects and organise artist run activities. As practising artists themselves, we understand the needs and requirements of an artist, and hope to provide that to artists who wish to come spend time here.

We also take on freelance commissioned projects .

The artist residency is our recent venture amongst many activities that team Dragonfly does.

Brief description of residency program

The residency at studio Dragonfly is aimed at artists from all across the world, in the mediums of ceramic, paining and writing.

We have a fully functional ceramic studio and painting studio, as well as accommodation facility available. The space i ideal for a quite time needed for writes and the historical s]city and its cultural flavour will allow a writer to the space he or she needs.

The purpose of the residency is cultural exchange and allowing an artist to focus on his / her own practice while based in the cultural city of Baroda (India). Essentially the duration could be 4 to 12 weeks and in some cases if the proposal justifies, we can look at a maximum of 6 months

If an artist can travel and mingle with other artists and see different places, it enriches their own practice in a very subtle manner; while having significant impact.

We are freelance artists who have started their venture and still do not have a designated budget or an organised institution that operates. However we are capable of professional functioning and have sufficient knowledge of the organisational and administrative qualities required for the project,
