Grates Cove Studios
New Newfoundland Residency Opportunity
Pitched on the extreme edge of Newfoundland, Canada’s east coast, Grates Cove Studios is a unique destination for artists from around the world. The facility, located two hours from the capital of St. John’s, operates a year-round artist residency, offering accommodations, locally inspired cuisine, professional studio space, art tools and equipment, and extensive support services, such as proposal writing and project design consultation.
Grates Cove Studios welcomes writers, visual and performing artists from around the world to apply for a residency between two weeks and three plus months.
If you are interested in residencies shorter than two weeks, please email or call us. This may be available during the month of June.
The Grates Cove Studios’ building is a 3600 square foot building with ten foot ceilings that was once the K-11 school house for Grates Cove. The entire top floor of the old school building (1800 square feet) is dedicated studio space for artists. The top floor is divided into two large rooms approximately 700 square feet each. These spaces are ideal for visual and performing artists. Off of each of these large open spaces are smaller rooms with a view of the ocean and are suitable for writers or those doing work on a computer or the like. Please communicate with Terrence and Courtney prior to your arrival about your project goals so that they can help to prepare your space before you arrive.
Grates Cove Studios has a fully equipped woodworking studio, photography equipment and other miscellaneous equipment available. Artist Terrence Howell is onsite at all times. He is available to help support artists. Terrence is also available for project consultation/collaboration. Other services available are grant writing/proposal preparation services, travel pick-up services from points within Newfoundland and meal preparation.
Please visit our website or give us a call for a full description of the residency and available services. Also, see the attached application
