Vision Collective Artist Residency
The Vaayu Vision Collective is a collaborative support system for artists to develop, manifest, and communicate their visionary work. Our principal intention is to nurture the arts and encourage a transformational experience in our communities.
The mission of the Vision Collective is to facilitate the creative and inspiration process.
The Vision Collective is an Indian based community that aims to make art accessible for the purpose of transformation. We strive to provide a culturally unique, healthy, and inspirational experience for Artist Residents.
What we do
The Vision Collective is focused on supporting creative expression. We do this by acting as a platform for artists to show and sell their work as well as work collaboratively to create experiences in spaces for art galleries, festivals and for inspired individuals. Although our focus is on assisting the rediscovery of the Visionary Art art style in India, we are thrilled and excited to begin supporting other forms of expression and art.
Vision Collective History
The Vision Collective ’s first years of operation were focused on building a community of creative artists through our artist residency. Our original goal was to create a platform for visionary art in North Goa, India. We wanted the Vision Collective to grow organically over the years as the community of artists we worked with grew and as we developed community-based art projects to facilitate inspiration. Having an on-site studio on the Vaayu roof top, we provided our artists with a space to work in and connect with the community. The Vision Collective Gallery has hosted over 30 group and solo shows by artists like Miles Toland, Shane Heath, Harshvardhan Kadam, Sachin Shetty and Kennan Branch, to name a few. We created opportunities to share the process through live art events, workshops, talks and documentary screenings in the gallery space. This year we finally started a homegrown art and music immersive gathering called ‘Origin Stories’, which we hope to explore in the coming years.
