Red Clay Farm, Economy, Nova Scotia
August 10th-17th , 2014
Deadline: April 20th 2014
White Rabbit is a week-long artist residency in which emerging and established artists set up camp at beautiful Red Clay Studios to practice, create and collaborate. The residency culminates in a public festival for the performance and exhibition of individual and collaborative works that have emerged over the course of the week.
White Rabbit Open Air Arts Project is an immersive outdoor experience. We encourage artists from a broad range of disciplines (textiles, dance, theatre, ceramics, paint, poetry, philosophy, words, audio, documentary, film, performance, music, you-name-it!) to push the boundaries of their practice, and work together to create the environment that is formed collaboratively and individually in response to the unique landscape.
Red Clay is an Eden and thus, is not equipped with many infrastructural amenities (although there there is good access to internet and to technical resources). Artists-in-residence traditionally pitch tents in the apple orchard next to the organic gardens, and bathe in the pond, solar showers or take a dip in the Bay of Fundy. (other accommodations are available – we aim to be accessible!).
The cost for participants is $285 and covers 8 days including workshops and presentations by senior artists, field trips, use of site facilities, all meals, and accommodation (camping or lofts). White Rabbit seeks to achieve culinary excellence: food is locally-sourced and prepared by qualified chefs.
Interested artists should submit the following by April 20th, 2014:
1. A brief description (max 1 page) of your proposed project while at White Rabbit – please include ideas/concepts you will be exploring, materials and any tools that you will need. We encourage projects that are harmonious with the environment, therefore please specify and justify the proposed use of any unnatural materials.
2. A brief artist biography including your current place of residence, previous work and media (1 page max).
Submissions should be sent by email or post:
Postmarked before or on April 20th: PO Box 35, Bass River, NS. B0M 1S0
