PEERS is a four-week residency programme at Khoj studios, New Delhi that provides emerging artists and creative practitioners a platform for dialogue, experimentation and exchange. Now in its 17th year, the Khoj PEERS programme continues to provide a forum for interaction, creating a network of young interdisciplinary artists from various art, architecture, new media, performance/performing art, and design disciplines to push and experiment with the interdisciplinarity of contemporary art.
