101 Arts in Newbury invited Mary Genis to become a Suramedura International Artist in Residence based in Hikkaduwa, Sri Lanka.
Suramedura resident artists receive mentorship, coaching and opportunities with their peers in the Sri Lankan Arts Community to develop projects with other international residents.
The residency offers artists the chance to produce and present a new piece of work, which responds to the environment of Suramedura and Sri Lanka. Artists are encouraged to present their artistic practice at the beginning of their stay through our partnership with Colombo University of Visual and Performing Arts and to engage with the artistic community in Sri Lanka.
At the end of their stay the artists have the opportunity to present the outcome of their residency, for example through exhibition, screening or performance at Suramedura and in the UK.
