The main goal is that artists are able to focus on their ideas and projects, enhancing creativity and inspiration and connect, between them, the local community and nature. We welcome artists with a professional standing in their field and emerging artists of promising talent. The Program is 2 to 4 weeks long duration between 5 - 8 artists at a time. In case projects requires it, participants may apply for a longer period. Applications are accepted from all disciplines. Artists work on a self-directed residency: you will have uninterrupted, self-directed work time. We will not pressure you to deliver finished work; you can focus solely on research and development of ideas.However, during your stay there will be a tutor to discuss ideas, projects and progress of work during their stay.
