Sura Medura is an International Artist Residency centre in Hikkaduwa, South West Sri Lanka. It was established in 2011 and offers funded and self funded opportunities for artists in all disciplines from Europe and beyond.

It continues the artistic programme of the Chandrasevana Centre that was established by the Hikkaduwa Area Relief Fund in 2005, providing support for the local community after the Tsunami of 2004.

Artists Maria McCavana, Pippa Taylor and Sue Hill originated in different artistic practices, but all worked with drawing and painting in their response to the environment and community of Sri Lanka during their six week residency in February 2019.
