IAW is an experimental interdisciplinary art workshop held once every 2 years since 2001. It is envisaged as a non-didactic experimental forum to facilitate an interdisciplinary collaboration of art forms. The participating artists lives and works in the workshop site for fourteen days. The immediate aim of the workshop is to function as an experimental art-laboratory. To create an atmosphere where artists from different geographical parts of the world as well as from different parts within Sri Lanka, can set up a non hierarchical work situation where exchange and transfer of knowledge, energy and skills could take place as an intensely lived experience.
