WAA Residency was launched in 2013 with the aim to facilitate and sup-port art practice. One of the few art residencies in Mumbai, India, the res-idency provides individual studio space, professional networking opportunities and an intellectually stimulating environment for dialogue on visual arts practices for artists and curators. The residency organizes regular visits of Mumbai Art District. In addition, the residency also organizes art-ist talks and open studios. The residency is situated in the heart of Mumbai in Bandra, a vibrant neighborhood. There are nine studios situated in a quiet lane above the WAA office and project space.
The residency is open to one emerging Qatari artist for the duration of 1 month. Students enrolled in an academic program at the time of the residency are not eligible to apply.
The residency provides 24 hour access to a private furnished studio space, communal facilities, studio visits from guest critics, support in planning trips to museums, galleries and other cultural venues.
