Program Description

The program is completely self-generated by the artist. Support with local connections including galleries, venues, artists, organizations, material sourcing, etc. is happily provided. Costless stay residency duration is two weeks. Start date is upon mutual agreement. Longer projects are welcome, but may need to share rent and services cost and can be discussed on a project-by-project basis. Intervening the house and generally helping around (urban garden, restoration, compositing, etc...) is always welcome and can be used toward covering longer stay accommodation cost sharing.
