Add to Favorites Report Listing

India’s first creative residency ‘Emotive Creators’ invites participants to experience a one-of-a-kind program of creative arts process, with personalized mentoring, group and one-to-one support.

Dwell in the life-changing and diverse Indian/Portuguese state of Goa. Come to stay in a stunning villa with all necessary amenities on the island of Corjuem, which is near the picturesque village of Aldona. You will be personally and professionally supported in immersing yourself in Goa’s rich landscape, cultures and arts.  Mingle with local creative individuals.

Unplug your soul, mind, heart and creative practice. Enter a journey into the various layers of your being. You will be guided by two emotional wellness professionals (a psychologist and a psychotherapist) and a professionally trained awareness curator of distinct practice, who will establish a program of a wide-ranging and imaginative program that caters to the participant’s needs. Stay for two, three or four weeks. Participants will be an integral part of a small community along with the creative residency facilitators.

Artists, educators, and people with little experience in art making but who wish to express themselves creatively using art as a tool for inner growth are all invited.

This is a unique creative residency that will appeal to those who want to become more consciously aware of their inner life and their place in the world, thus increasing their overall well-being and creativity. Artists will be able to broaden their practice in social and emotional ways by exploring theoretical discourses.

The Program:

Creative arts process in groups and personalized mentoring with Katharina Domscheit-D’souza. One-to-one and group support from Kripi Malviya and David Stanton.
