Artists of any age from any country may apply. We accept solo artists as well as collaborating teams of up to three people. We are interested in applicants whose practice involves a defined engagement with landscape, ecology, and or projects that employ historical or first-hand research of the 108 site. Please have your statement reflect this intention.

Residency 108 invites emerging and established artists, writers and thinkers of all disciplines to immerse themselves in their creative practice. We particularly welcome those who work with nature, ecology and the installation of temporary outdoor land-art works. The residency is free apart from the cost of travel and material expenses which must be assumed by the individual. The residency is located in a remote area, there is no public transportation in the area, and we do not have a vehicle available for resident use apart from a bike. We do however provide weekly trips to shop for supplies and food. Our program is ideal for artists who wish to engage with the landscape and prefer isolation to interaction. If you require constant contact with “civilization” this may not be the program for you.
