Mudhouse Residency

With Funding
Lasithi, Greece


The residency is inclusive to a number of artistic disciplines, with the facilities to accommodate studio artists, photographers, writers, choreographers and composers. For studio artists our facilities include 24 hour access to an open air studio space in the heart of the village. One dancer/ choreographer will be provided use of a separate practice space with athletic flooring. The Music house concert hall/ grand piano is available to one composer-in-residence per session. The residency also provides artists who don’t require the use of a studio with the time and structure to focus on a non-studio based project, be it a novel, screenplay, video, or photographic series. Hike across olive orchards or spend the time in the peaceful solitude of a mountain village abundant in charming gardens and writing nooks.
