I-Park Announces its 2017 General Residency Program
I-Park, located in rural East Haddam, Connecticut (U.S.), announces its 2017 General (multi-disciplinary) Residency Program. The program is open to those working in the following creative disciplines: visual arts, creative writing, music composition/sound art, architecture, landscape/garden/ecological design and moving image. Self-directed residencies will be offered from June through November, 2017. Most residencies consist of 6-7 artists and are 4-weeks in duration. International applicants are welcome.
I-Park provides comfortable, private living quarters in a remodeled 1850’s era farmhouse, a private studio space and a food/meals program. In addition to attentive staff support, shared workshop space and a stimulating natural environment - a wide array of tools, equipment and materials are available upon request. Two new, large visual arts studios are scheduled to come on line for the 2017 residency season.
Work samples are evaluated through a competitive, juried process. A $30 application fee helps defray the cost of the independent selection panels. Accepted artists are responsible for their own work materials as well as transportation to and from the area. The program is otherwise fully-funded (offered at no cost to invited artists).
Program details and application materials are available at http://www.i-park.org/general-residency-program. Application deadline is Monday, January 30, 2017.
On a separate note, I-Park will be hosting its sixth international Site-Responsive Art Residency & Biennale on June 4, 2017. The artists for this program have already been selected.
