Spring Creative Residency

A wonderful time to search for inspiration, explore the land and encounter new emerging life.

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.

Duration of residency
Either two weeks or four weeks.

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.


  • Open Studio: a large, carpeted, open plan room which is ideal for dance or movement sessions, rehearsals and group activities. Activities can be scheduled in the Open Studio such as morning yoga, evening dance, meetings or performances.
  • Garage Workshop: well equipped covered space for artisan crafts and practical projects.
  • Kitchen: equipped with a fridge, oven, stove top and cooking equipment.
  • Library: the library houses an eclectic collection of interesting books. Topics include art technique, philosophy, mythology, cooking and environmental science, plus some classic fiction and a selection of games.
  • Lounge & Dining Room: a great place to gather for a meal or enjoy a cup of tea by the fire.
  • Hot Tub: Dreamfarm has a large, wood-fired cedar barrel hot tub which is lit on special occasions.

Active Contribution
Part of our community practice is that everybody shares domestic responsibilities. We ask all participants to spend approximately an hour each day contributing to the upkeep and improvement of the shared facilities. Duties may include basic household tasks, cleaning, gardening or site maintenance work. If you have specialist skills, we can put them to good use.

Analogue Living
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 rhythms. 

We invite expressions of interest to be lodged via our online form:
