Artists in Residence











Meet Preeya and Murali Nair of Flying Elephant Films!

In the summer of 2012, we developed our first International Artists in Residence program featuring Preeya Nair and  Art For Change, the non-profit she runs with her filmmaker husband Murali.  This year-long partnership project began with a visit from Preeya June  1-9, during which a series of workshops and events were held featuring Indian film, food and culture.

While visiting Kent County, Preeya also conducted educational, interactive film presentations with Kent School students, Kent County High School Students and two filmaking workshops with adults and adolescents.

A relationship with Preeya Nair is ongoing. Learn more about this husband and wife filmmaker team by visiting their website:
