Invererne is a home in the Scottish Highlands where artists take part in creative residencies, living together, close to nature. During the summer of 2020 they will bring together a group of artists from a diverse range of creative disciplines. It will be a chance for the artists to learn about other artist’s approaches – to try out different ways of working and see their practice from a fresh perspective. By stepping outside of their usual ways of making work, the week offers a space to refresh and nourish your creativity.
Over the week artists are invited to playfully explore how their different individual artistic practices might engage with one another; whether that be through workshops sharing skills and practice, unstructured creative time, conversations on a walk, or while cooking dinner. This residency is not focused on developing specific creative projects, but a week dedicated to exploring your artistic practice through collaboration and exchange with artists working in different disciplines.
A reflection on your creative process over the week shared only with the co-ordinators.
There is a dining room where they share all the meals – unless the weather is so nice that you want to eat outside. Downstairs there are two kitchens, the back kitchen is not used as much for cooking and can be a quiet place to read, too. The house has three shared bathrooms. There are two single bedrooms, three doubles and a triple bedroom, all with single beds. You are likely to be sharing your bedroom with a fellow residency participant.
Invererne is in the Highlands of Scotland at the mouth of the river Findhorn. Invererne itself is surrounded by trees and fields. A short drive away is Findhorn Bay with its beaches, across the bay is Culbin Forest, a unique ecosystem of sand dunes and pine trees. The organizers will make trips to both these locations over the week, and there are bicycles available if you wish to explore for yourself.
