1Shanthiroad invites applications from young emerging artists working in and across the following disciplines of New Media: Photography, Film & Video, Animation, Light and Projection, Media Arts, Music & Sound and Technology.

This doesn’t limit it to digital media. We are open to “traditional” art forms, such as painting and sculpture which can be found within this context. We wish to emphasize that dialogue and interaction are characteristic of new media.


1Shanthiroad NEXT-STEP residency program will provide a platform for five emerging artists to live at 1Shanthiroad studios for a total of four weeks, have 24/7 access to 1Shanthiroad’s facilities, to produce work individually or collaboratively that culminates into an open studio or final exhibition at the end of the residency. Through peer exchange, mentorship with our in-house staff and artists, and engagement with the local art community through workshops, talks and studio visits, 1Shanthiroad NEXT-STEP will strive to provide the artists an environment conducive for bridging the gap between the early stages of their education and their career beginnings.

Accommodation at 1Shanthiroad Studios
