2012 Artists in Residence Program at I-Park
Application Deadline: January 30, 2012
The I-Park Foundation, Inc., a 450-acre natural woodland retreat in East Haddam, CT (U.S), announces its twelfth season hosting its multi-disciplinary residency program. Self-directed artists’ residencies will be offered from May through November 2012, with off-season sessions in April and December. Most residencies are four weeks in duration. Residencies are offered to creative individuals working in the following disciplines: Visual (including Environmental) Art, Music Composition/Sound Sculpture/Design, Moving Image, Creative Writing and Landscape/Garden Design. Work samples are evaluated through a competitive, juried process.
A $30 application fee helps defray the cost of the independent jury panels. Accepted artists are responsible for their own work materials as well as transportation to and from the area. The program is otherwise offered at no cost to accepted artists, including a basic meal program where most of, though not all, the food is provided.
Accommodations at I-Park include comfortable private living quarters in an 1850’s era farmhouse and a private studio space. An abundance of tools, equipment, musical instruments and peripherals, site materials, an electric kiln, wireless internet and library facilities are provided.
International applicants are welcome. To defray the cost of travel, four $750.00 grants will be awarded to international artists whose work is held in particularly high regard by the Grant Committee.
