Stages Artist Training

Stages Artist Training was a workshop designed after we saw the need to provide the opportunity for professional artists in Sri Lanka to build and continue a regular practise. This workshop ran for a period of 10 weeks. This was sustained by the Artist Training Fund: a fund that artists who closely work with Stages themselves set up as an investment to further their practise and skills.
