Dreamfarm Eco-Arts Retreat

General information

Brief description of organisation

Dreamfarm Eco-Arts Retreat is an arts and environment centre in the Huon Valley, Tasmania. A boutique retreat centre and artisan ecovillage, Dreamfarm hosts group retreats, artist residencies and community gatherings which bring together people, cultures and ideas. Collectively, we exchange knowledge, inspire each other, develop deeper connections and share transformative experiences.

Brief description of residency program

A creative residency at Dreamfarm is a chance to spend focused time in an inspiring natural setting in order to develop meaningful creative projects. Each participant rents a private studio, as both a residence and a creative workspace, for stays of two or four weeks.

Residencies at Dreamfarm are entirely self-directed, and self-catered, allowing the flexibility to work autonomously and follow your own creative process. A Dreamfarm residency is a rare opportunity to gather ideas, refine skills, research, experiment, grow and produce new work. At Dreamfarm, you can dream big, break free and let your imagination run wild.
