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.

Two four week-long residencies are offered each year, one during the month of October and one in May. The program accommodates three artists at a time. Each resident is provided with a room, working facilities and a weekly stipend for food, participants are responsible for cooking their own meals.

Program Description

The program takes place on 108 acres of pastoral land which was used as a horse farm in the last century. The property features rolling hills, mowed paths, meadows, densely wooded forests, wetlands with a few ponds of varying size and a seasonal stream. In addition to these ecosystems a variety of native plant species host habitats for birds, reptiles and amphibians. 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.
