2013 Artists-in-Residence Program

Application Deadline:
February 4, 2013

The I-Park Foundation, Inc., located in rural East Haddam, CT (U.S.), announces its 2013 multi-disciplinary artists-in-residence program. Self-directed artists' residencies will be offered from May through November 2013. Most residencies are 4-weeks in duration. Residencies are offered to creative individuals working in the Visual Arts, Music Composition/Sound Sculpture, Architecture, Creative Writing, Moving Image and Landscape/Garden Design. There is also a special Environmental Art Program (residency and exhibition components) in 2013. Work samples are evaluated through a competitive, juried process.

Applications are submitted online. A $30 fee helps defray the cost of the independent jury panels. Accepted artists are responsible for their own work materials as well as transportation to and from the area. The program is otherwise offered at no cost to accepted artists. I-Park provides a basic meal program where most of, though not all, the food is provided.

Accommodations at I-Park include comfortable private living quarters in an 1850's era farmhouse and a private studio space. In addition to attentive staff support, an abundance of tools, equipment, musical instruments and peripherals, site materials, an electric kiln, wireless internet and library facilities are provided.

International applicants are welcome. To defray the cost of travel, four $750.00 grants will be awarded to non-North American artists whose work is held in particularly high regard by the Grant Committee.

Program materials, including application form and comprehensive FAQ, are available online at
