White Rabbit Residency: August 12th – 19th

The White Rabbit Residency encourages artists to push the boundaries of their practice collaboratively and individually. White Rabbit takes place at Red Clay Farm, a property whose diverse landscapes includes orchards, streambeds, tall forests with steep terrains, low lying meadows and nearby ocean access.
The residency is a 7-day immersive experience in which emerging and established artists are invited to set up camp and to find themselves in practice, creation and collaboration. The week-long residency culminates in the White Rabbit Festival, a public celebration where residents will have the opportunity to showcase their journey and works to an audience of more than two hundred.
The week will include field trips to waterfalls and tidal flats, a gathering around a campfire each evening, a collaborative local pirate radio station, use of site facilities (sauna, pond swimming, solar showers, etc), and accommodations (camping or lofts). White Rabbit seeks to achieve culinary excellence: our wine-glass-in-the-woods dining features fresh food from Red Clay Farm prepared by experienced and dedicated chefs on-site.
We encourage artists from a broad range of disciplines to apply (textiles, dance, theatre, ceramics, paint, poetry, philosophy, words, audio, documentary, film, performance, music, you-name-it). In addition to working on individual projects, residents have opportunities to participate in peer-to-peer learning, workshops, presentations, and collaborative projects.
You can find more information about the Red Clay Studio Society and the White Rabbit Open Air Arts Project at whiterabbitarts.ca.
If you are interested in taking part of this residency, send us a brief proposal including the following:
A brief description (max 1 page) of your proposed project while at the residency. 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.
A brief artist bio including your current place of residence and examples of your previous work. Online links and portfolios encouraged.
Cost: $390. Artists will be provided with camping accommodations and meals at Red Clay Farm. Bursaries are available pending confirmation of funding. Please include a statement of your financial position and any relevant details if you would like to be considered for a bursary.
