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. Residencies are self-directed, undisturbed and non-judgmental. You decide what you’re working on and when.
They are pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for our 2021 Site-Responsive Art Residency & Biennale. This will be the eighth such biennale in the series. The application deadline is January 18, 2021 and the residency will take place in September 2021. Participating artists will receive a $3,500 stipend plus travel reimbursement. Soon, they will also be soliciting applications for the 2021 Composers + Musicians Collaborative Residency. The biannual Composers + Musicians Collaborative Residency features an established chamber music ensemble collaborating with composers. The program pulls together a group of composers, a performing ensemble and its music director in an intimate, immersive residency setting. It encourages collaborative exchanges of ideas and inspiration, entails numerous readings of the new works in development, and culminates in a series of concerts.
Regrettably, there will be no Open Call for the core General Residency Program in 2021. The 2021 General Residency slots are reserved for the artists who were accepted for 2020 residencies.
