Sura Medura Arts Centre
Welcome to Sura Medura International Artist Residency Centre


Sura Medura is an International Artist Residency centre in Hikkaduwa, South West Sri Lanka. It was established in 2011 and offers opportunities for both Scottish Artists, funded through Creative Scotland, and European Artists funded through IN SITU. It was founded to continue the artistic programme of the Chandrasevana Centre that was established by the Hikkaduwa Area Relief Fund www.chandrasevana.com

Artists from all disciplines are invited to submit proposals to create work that is enchanted by being developed in Sri Lanka. 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 and Scotland.
