I-Park is now accepting applications for its fully-funded four-week summer residencies. This multidisciplinary program is open to architects and landscape architects/designers looking to enrich their practice in a collegial, retreat-like setting—in the company of artists working in visual arts, creative writing, music composition/sound art and moving image.
Located within a 450-acre nature preserve in rural East Haddam, Connecticut (U.S.), I-Park provides residents with 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 I-Park’s expansive grounds. Residencies are self-directed, undisturbed and non-judgmental. You decide what you’re working on and when.
Residents can use their time at I-Park to work on commissions, competition proposals, dissertations, model building or theoretical investigations. Or they can just take the time to build or plant something on the land, freed from the constraints of a client, a budget, or even a purpose.
Details and application forms are available at i-park.org. Applications are due February 28, 2019, and carry a $35 fee to help defray the cost of the selection panels. This year, I-Park will also be offering $500 travel grants to six international residents.
The call for applications for the autumn residency sessions will be announced in March and carry a deadline of April 30. For further information, contact email@example.com or 860-873-2468.
