This Programme is a Flagship programme for KHOJ and is a four-week residency for
recently graduated students. Initiated in 2003, the PEERS Programme is an attempt
to include young artists and students into the KHOJ network and to provide a forum
for experimentation and interaction with the larger artistic community. KHOJ provides
a space for emerging new voices for students from different art colleges in India.
The aims and objective of the PEERS Programme are to:
- Provide a space for experimentation outside an academic programme and thus to facilitate
emerging art practitioners.
- Facilitate peer to peer discussions that provide a stimulus for discourse for students
from different parts of the country.
- Allocate time for deeper understanding of art practices from around the world and
South Asia through the huge collection of books available in the KHOJ library.
- Stimulate critical dialogue by inviting a critic- in- residence.
- Provide a deeper learning and understanding of varied art practice by visiting studios
of established artists in Delhi.
