General information

Brief description of organisation

Dreamfarm Eco-Arts Retreat was established as a centre for cultural and ecological collaboration towards positive social change. Our mission is to design, create and share better ways of living.

An incubator for cultural development and artistic growth, Dreamfarm offers fertile conditions to cultivate innovative projects.

Brief description of residency program

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

Creative retreats at Dreamfarm are entirely self-directed, and self-catered, allowing the flexibility to work autonomously and follow your own creative process. Retreat time at our picturesque sanctuary at the edge of the wilderness is a rare opportunity to gather ideas, refine skills, research, experiment, grow and produce new work. Its a chance to step away from ordinary life in order to develop the extraordinary. At Dreamfarm, you can dream big, break free and let your imagination run wild.
