Artists in Residence

Shangri La hosts invited artists in residence whose work is related to, and advances the study and understanding of Islamic arts and cultures. Selected artists pursue their own creative work and present public programs such as lectures, workshops and performances.  Artists are invited based on professional qualifications and achievements, how closely the artist’s work compliments Shangri La’s mission, and the suitability of Shangri La for the artist’s activity.
