Global Arts Village, Delhi

Delhi, India

Global Arts Village (GAV) is an artist's residency program designed to bring artist's from all over the world to work together in a retreat.
It is a bustling little community situated in Ghitorni one hours drive from the centre of Delhi. It is very eco friendly and the bulidings are constructed of rendered mud brick and thatched roofing.
Situated just outside the centre of Delhi, GAV offers the chance for artists to work uninterrupted.
Accomodation, meals and studios are provided. The residents are served 3 meals a day and as I write I am served a chai tea from one of the workers.
The atmosphere is friendly.
I am here on my own at this time there are 10 other artists arriving in the next two days.
I am both looking forward to meeting them and a little pensive about how we will interact as a group.
Only time will tell.
The GAV program includes a choice of one of two 4 day trips, a journey through the golden triangle or a trip to the residence of the Dhali Lama in Dharamasala in the Himalayas.
It also includes meditation, yoga and ayervedic massage. Today I had my first session of all three.
I'll do the yoga I was taught at home each morning but I'll have the massage again.
