Dreamfarm Creative Retreat - March 2019

Join a select group of creative artists this March to let your imagination run wild!

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.

This March we welcome a diverse group of individual creative artists - visual artists, musicians, writers and performers - to come together for a special group retreat at Dreamfarm.

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.

Duration of residency
Between one and four weeks.

Disciplines, work equipment and facilities
Dreamfarm welcome expressions of interest from visual artists, performing artists, musicians, writers, movement practitioners, textile artists, photographers, craftspeople and researchers. We encourage applications from practitioners who are keen to connect with the natural landscape, and are keen to participate in community life.

Dreamfarm is an intentionally low-tech creative environment, with no mobile phone reception and strictly limited internet access, which offers a great opportunity to unplug from the outside world and reconnect with your natural creative flow.

Facilities include a large open plan studio which is ideal for dance and movement sessions, rehearsals and group activities. There is a well equipped garage workshop, perfect for artisan crafts and practical projects. We have a growing library, a collection of musical instruments - including an upright piano - and art materials which are available for use.

Studio accommodation
Each studio at Dreamfarm comes comfortably furnished and equipped with working desks and double beds, bedding provided. Rooms can accommodate one person or a couple.
Studio fees: from $250 per week.

Expectations towards the artist
As a cooperative artisan village, Dreamfarm has a strong sense of community, in which resident artisans and retreat participants share domestic responsibilities and come together frequently for social and recreational activities. As part of the program, all participants volunteer for one hour per day to complete household tasks.
