RESIDENCY 108 spring session

RESIDENCY 108 invites artists whose practice involves a defined engagement with landscape & ecology.

Description of residency program
Residency 108 invites emerging and established artists, writers and thinkers of all disciplines to immerse themselves in their creative practice.  We particularly welcome those who work with nature, ecology and the installation of temporary outdoor land-art works. 

Fees and support
The residency is free apart from the cost of travel and material expenses which must be assumed by the individual. 

Duration of residency
Two four week-long residencies are offered each year, one during the month of October and one in May. The program accommodates three artists at a time.

Accommodation
Each resident is provided with a room, working facilities and a weekly stipend for food, participants are responsible for cooking their own meals. 

The program takes place on 108 acres of pastoral land which was used as a horse farm in the last century. The property features rolling hills, mowed paths, meadows, densely wooded forests, wetlands with a few ponds of varying size and a seasonal stream. In addition to these ecosystems a variety of native plant species host habitats for birds, reptiles and amphibians.

Expectations towards the artist
The residency is located in a remote area, there is no public transportation in the area, and we do not have a vehicle available for resident use apart from a bike. We do however provide weekly trips to shop for supplies and food. Our program is ideal for artists who wish to engage with the landscape and prefer isolation to interaction. If you require constant contact with “civilization” this may not be the program for you.  Each resident will be asked to present their work during the residency and weekly critiques are held as a group, sometimes with a visiting critic.

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance
All artistic disciplines will be considered, but artists whose previous work and/or proposals reflect the narrow focus of the program, stated above will be given preferential consideration.

Studio/ workspace
Each artist will be provided with their own work space located across from the main house.
