Good Hart Artist Residency 2020

Good Hart Artist Residency 2020

The Good Hart Artist Residency located in Good Hart, Michigan offers 2-3 week residencies to dedicated visual artists and writers. The residency provides full room and board including a newly completed residency building with a 24 x 14 detached studio, a fully stocked kitchen with several meals provided by host family each week, a $500.00 stipend, and quiet, natural surroundings to concentrate on creative work. The resident artist is housed in a rural area within walking distance of Lake Michigan and the village of Good Hart, along the “Tunnel of Trees,” a Scenic Heritage Route. The Good Hart Artist Residency offers a solitary experience by hosting one resident at a time. 

The Good Hart Artist Residency works with a variety of local non-profit partners each offering a different opportunity for community engagement. In keeping with their mission, these partnerships are designed to enhance the artist’s experience while engaging the local community. Connecting the resident artists and writers with the local community is one of the major focuses of their program. Applicants to the residency should review the partners page. In the application to the residency there is a listing of residency time slots and if there is a designated partner for that time slot it will be listed. If an applicant has a specific interest in collaborating with one or other partners even if it is not indicated for the time slot they should write that into their intent statement in the application. Artists are encouraged to carefully weigh their own abilities, capacity, and level of interest in collaboration with these partners. In considering applications for residency, an emphasis is placed on the applicant’s description of proposed collaboration with community partners.

The application is online with $25.00 USD application fee. Deadline 15th January 2020.
