I-Park Foundation Artists-in-Residence Program

I-Park Foundation Artists-in-Residence Program


I-Park, a 450-acre natural woodland retreat in East Haddam, Connecticut, U.S.A., offers a multidisciplinary artists-in-residence program. Residencies are typically offered from May until December in visual arts, music composition/sound art, creative writing, moving image and architecture/landscape design. Most residencies are 4 weeks in duration with 6-7 artists populating each session. I-Park provides residents with a quiet, retreat-type setting, private living quarters in a renovated 1840s farmhouse, a private studio, meals program, fully equipped workshop and modest library – as well as creative access to its expansive grounds. Residencies are self-directed, undisturbed and non-judgmental. You decide what you’re working on and when.

I-Park is now accepting applications for multi-disciplinary artists’ residencies. These fully-funded residencies are open to artists and designers working in the visual arts, creative writing, music composition/sound art, moving image/new media and architecture/garden/landscape design.
