Guest Reviews


I loved the stay in Kalanirvana Artists Residency , the Curator Ashis is very informative and take care of the artists like family member. I have visited Kalanirvana for three times from 2011 to 2017.

Jackie Lima : USASenior Artist and Curator

I had a great stay in ( KIAR ) Kalanirvana Artists Residency for my performing art project. Curator and Director Ashis Pahi has shown me the integral part of Indian culture and heritage and my interaction with local people helped me to know India and its ancient culture closely. Though the Residency is situated in a city, but it is ideally located in a green zone and it is far from the hue and cry of city life with a beautiful, friendly and peaceful surrounding; making it a very relaxing place for creative mind to get recharged.

Yonggu Shin : S. KoreaInternational Performing Artist

The place was absolutely unique for me. There are a lot of interesting subject for me to capture as a photographer. Most of my best photographs i have captured from India during my KIAR residency. Would love to visit Again.
