chaNorth is happy to announce a new Winter Residency Program. Individual artists and groups of collaborators are invited to send project proposals. Artists will be provided with studio space and living space on a weekly basis and are able to specify the amount of time they would like to be in residence.
There is not a formal application process for our winter session. If interested in off-season residency, please emailchanorth with a project proposal, artist bio, links to related work, contact information and the residency dates you are requesting. Available dates: February 19-April 28.
Our summer/fall residency session is comprised of five one-month sessions. Selected artists will be given a four-week residency that includes a private bedroom and studio, a fully stocked kitchen and one communal meal per day. As part of the residency artists are also given an “organic internship,” where they complete one four-hour work shift per week at McEnroe Organic Farm, allowing a deeper connection to the land and the food it produces.
Artists are responsible for travel costs and supplies. Collaborative teams of artists are invited to apply.
This year, five artists will receive fully subsidized residencies at chaNorth.
