In 1925, Dorothy and Leonard Elmhirst purchased the neglected 14th century Dartington estate. The Elmhirsts were pioneers, who devoted their wealth to founding the Dartington Hall Trust. The Elmhirsts poured their resources into the “Dartington Experiment” – restoring the estate buildings and setting up a host of farming, forestry and educational projects. Early initiatives included Dartington Hall School, Dartington Tweed Mill and later Dartington Glass.
Dartington rapidly became a magnet for artists, architects, writers, philosophers and musicians from around the world, creating an exceptional centre of creative activity. Every year, Dartington sponsors a number of artists and provides studio and outdoor space for the creation of new work. The Arts at Dartington are inviting applications from artists who specialise in developing non-conventional work with an 2016 outdoor theme.
Dartington can offer subsidised rates in its accommodation, which ranges from basic single room to luxury hotel accommodation. More info here.
