Program Description

Located within a 450-acre nature preserve in rural East Haddam, Connecticut (U.S.), I-Park provides residents with a quiet, retreat-type setting, private living quarters in a renovated 1840s farmhouse, a private studio, meals program, fully equipped workshop and modest library – as well as creative access to its expansive grounds. Residencies are self-directed, undisturbed and non-judgmental. You decide what you’re working on and when. 
Applications carry a $35 fee to help defray the cost of the selection panels. This year, I-Park will also be offering $500 travel grants to four international residents.
