Artists are asked to share in their love for the creation of art.
Visiting artists are asked to be inspired by the unique beauty of each region,
to respect and accept the kindnesses and stories of the local people
while they work to foster a relationship with the people in the many lands of the earth,
contribute to the artistic, social, and economic development of the local area,

Projects are usually designed for watercolor artists and other painters but residencies may be organized for other artists, writers, dancers, sculptors, and all other artistic and fine crafts disciplines. Artists may enquire to see if space is available so they may be accommodated if possible although appropriate studio space is not guaranteed or might require additional charges. Other individuals could possibly book a residential retreat centre for use during cultural/scenic travel and exchange but priority will be given to artists who will be contributing to the social and artistic development of the local community.
Creators of a project should
include details of the
including terms of residency(requirements and expectations),
housing arrangements, and information about community activities.
It would be wonderful if outside funding could be found to make the program
free to all artists and local resident participants if possible.
HERE IS AN EXAMPLE
|Cost of Residency: $300 per month per
artist based on individual booking in dorm accommodation and includes
providing artists willing fill the pellet stove. The
40x70 feet with 3 bedrooms,
sunroom, livingroom, diningroom, and kitchen. The
rooms all have work tables and there are additional tables
in the large living room/workshop space. There
is seasonal work space available in an uninsulated
building. Artists in the North
must provide funds
their own food, art supplies, transportation, and other expenses.
Or: The residency provides free accommodation but the artist must provide
funding to cover the cost of utilities and a maintenance fee to cover cleaning costs if the artist does not do their own.
Others wishing to start
similar projects are invited to
