Nestled amongst 10 acres of nature, Khel Creative & Meditative Arts Centre Artist-in-Residence program offers creative development opportunities for emerging and mid-career, national and international artists, designers, art educators, writers, journalists & researchers. This is a self-directed, non-instructional program. Khel welcomes those from diverse disciplines especially interested in creating work with, or inspired by Canada and nature.
Khel's mission is to provide artists with a live & work space so that they can have undisturbed time to research, develop and further their creative pursuits. Artist residencies run from 2 - 14 days. You get full 24 hour access to your 300 sq. feet art studio, private accommodation and resources to help you in your creativity. At Khel , mindfulness and meditative arts are offered as a part of your stay, if you choose. There are simple meditation sittings daily, in the evenings. Khel's view is that meditation is a tool to calm the mind and can help further your creative potential.
