A new partnership of 7 organisations, committed to the development and support of artists working in Outdoor Arts, have received funding from Arts Council England to create a development programme for artists. The key part of which is a 6 week residency at Sura Medura, alongside mentoring and coaching.
Sura Medura is an International Artist Residency centre in Hikkaduwa, South West Sri Lanka. It was established in 2011 and offers opportunities for Artists. It was founded to continue the artistic programme of the Chandrasevana Centre that was established by the Hikkaduwa Area Relief Fund.

Selected artists are offered mentorship and opportunities to meet with their peers in the Sri Lankan arts community. They are also opportunities to present the resulting work in Sri Lanka, England and Scotland.
