The Piramal Art Residency, located in Thane, is a space for nurturing creative talent and providing artists with a forum to interact with peers and seniors from across the country. The artists for the residency are chosen through an application process. Each residency is organised around a particular theme (called a Cycle) drawn from art, history, science, literature or social studies. The residency consists of four studio rooms where six artists can work for a period of three weeks. Fully funded, the residency is open to artists working in the various disciplines of visual art as well as to writers and curators who can contribute to the dialogue and energy of the residency.
