Off Grid Guest Artist-In-Residence Program in Vermont

The Sable Project

No Funding
Stockbridge, United States


This residency is for professional individual artists or groups of artists looking for a shorter residency opportunity to work on a specific project, start a new creative endeavor, or put the finishing touches on a work. Guest Artists are asked to teach a workshop, provide critical feedback to our Summer Artists on their work, and present their work either in a public or private forum. If you are seeking a residency where you have a pristine studio and all the amenities to focus on your craft, this may not be for you. But if you want to be outdoors, collaborate, form community, and live in a tent, this just may be the perfect fit! You will need to fill out the application on our website, as well as submit a website of your work, or a CV along with examples of your work. Deadline to apply is June 1st 11:59pm EST.

Number of Participants

There will be between 6-12 artists at the land at any given time between June-August. In addition, a group of 2-4 Sable Team Members live and work at the land, and will be there to help with the everyday needs of the resident artists.

Program Description

Residencies range from 2 days to 1 week in length, and can happen anytime June through August. There is no fee for Guest Artists, but we ask that you teach a workshop, take time to provide critical feedback to our Resident Artists on their work, and present your work (either to the public or to our Residents). Guest Artists are also asked to participate in communal dinners, including cooking and cleaning. You are welcome but not required to participate in our work-trade times, involving gardening and other work around the land.
