NexUs Culture Nepal

Here at NexUs we host a vibrant, fully facilitated art residency program for both, emerging and established artists from all around the world. This program includes in-house workshops, exhibition opportunities, holistic guidance, collaboration with other artists, and much more.

The conceptual art network behind NexUs which enables the residency program is called LASANAA. It is the non-physical, alternative art space with the credo of bringing people together and allow learning through idea exchange. LASANAA provides an opportunity for national and international artists to explore art forms beyond all conventions and traditions. Through our program, we enable unique individual expression for already more than ten years.

Within NexUs we offer three rooms for all kind of artists (from any fields) who want to enfold their creative beings, get inspired, and develop their skills and abilities together within our network.

The residency fees are $1,600 per month includnig housing, meals, available technical and other support. The Space to host any event at NexUs is included in the fee as well.
