    APRE Art House is committed to supporting emerging art practitioners and in lieu of its this commitment, the Gallery is pleased to announce its Artist Residency Programme 2023 under APRE Edu. The Program offers four artists an opportunity to explore beyond their existing ecosystems through a collaboration with artists from diverse backgrounds. The duration of the programme is 8 weeks, where the resident artist will be encouraged to exchange ideas, have discussions and experience the dynamic art culture of Mumbai. The programme encourages multi- disciplinary practices to engage with the Gallery.
    The aim of the programme is to foster dialogue with the local community, explore possibilities and development of the artist’s practice through regular mentorship and feedback from the Gallery Director, Ms Prerna Jain and various Gallery Curators.

    FACILITY
     
    The residency is facilitated in a 10,000 sq. ft. property based in Sakinaka, Mumbai. Each artist will have an area of around 2,500 sq. ft. to themselves. The space is close to the airport and 7 minutes away from the metro, providing connectivity to the city. The terrace of the facility overlooks the sight of the city line with open skies. The accommodation largely focuses on studio space while having access to basic facilities for day- to – day living.
     
    MENTORSHIP
     
    The Programme will involve discussions and mentorship from the Director, Ms. Jain and from various curators that align with the Artist’s practice, providing key insights into the artist’s practice. We try to align each artist’s practice with specific curators and ask the artist to fill out the application form accordingly.
     
    PROGRAMME STRUCTURE
     
    The Artist is requested to submit an outline of what they would like to achieve at the time so the Gallery can align its efforts with the Artist to achieve the same. The Gallery will provide access to academic papers and literature from the Gallery Library that aligns with the Artist’s practice. There will be open studio visits (as per season’s conditions) to gain exposure and feedback from a wider set of audience.
