The multidisciplinary General Residency Program is our foundational residency structure. I-Park supports artists and designers working in the following creative disciplines: Music Composition, Creative Writing, Moving Image, Architecture, Landscape/Garden Design, Visual Arts and Interdisciplinary Practice.
Between 6 and 8 artists reside onsite for 4-week sessions. Residents are provided a private bedroom, a private studio and chef-prepared dinners five nights a week. Shared amenities include a communal kitchen, a Common Area for group gatherings, a library, 25 art/nature trails, wireless internet and a workshop outfitted with tools, materials and equipment.
I-Park’s resourceful staff is devoted to providing each artist with a fulfilling, productive, safe and comfortable live/work setting. Institutional demands on artists’ time are minimal. We aspire to provide competent, personalized support including removing distractions that could otherwise prevent them from realizing their most ambitious projects.
The residency program is set within an expansive nature preserve, with open fields, miles of walking trails and stone walls, ponds and streams – and a pristine river runs through it. We believe that this quiet, retreat-type environment is especially conducive to the creative process. Over the years, the land has inspired a passionate interest in site-responsive art.
Except for a $35 application fee, the residencies are fully funded.
