How can we facilitate new dialogue, inspire social and political transformations and reimagine our relationship to nature in response to climate breakdown? 

A 3 week immersive residency set in the Kankon jungle of South Goa to explore the question of climate resilience through art collaborations, community and collective dialogue.

This site-responsive program is set in a unique and ecologically-sensitive tropical forest nestled between the Western Ghats of India and the Malabar Coast. 

 

It introduces residents to the local ecology and culture of the area, inviting responses to the environmental crisis faced in this local context. The program fosters close engagement and participation with local communities and aims to support them socially and economically through the presence of and exchange with resident artists.

Residents are welcome to work on individual pieces and encouraged to collaborate with peers on the residency program. Khaama Kethna cultivates spaces that encourage personal and professional growth through free learning, creative experimentation and inspiration drawn from direct contact with the wild. The Project's intention is to rewild and explore ways to resolve the enduring conflict between (wo)men and nature. 

 

The residency culminates in an interdisciplinary eco-arts festival celebrating all pieces created by residents in response to the climate crisis. Residents are asked to offer a workshop or talk during their time in the jungle, as well as create at least one piece of work for Khaama Kethna collection that will be included in the  festival at the end of the program.
