Program Description:Red Clay is offering weekly residencies for individuals seeking a place to work within the woods, by the sea.
Red Clay is located in Upper Economy Nova Scotia on the Bay of Fundy about 90-minutes from Halifax (see on google maps). Red Clay is a utopian homestead of gardens, lawns, pathways and ponds. Within this landscape, the Red Clay house has a well-lit studio space where resident artists can set up individual workplaces. The intention is for the space to be clean and uncluttered to allow for thought and introspection.
The Honey and Salt residency program is for creative and productive people who seek and can derive inspiration from a place to work from in rural Nova Scotia (such as a charming cabin in the woods) with access to a workspace or studio.
The culture of the residency is one of respect for each person’s work. Similarly, residents are expected to support the aesthetic by keeping the space and gardens beautiful.
The philosophy of the Honey and Salt residencies is to offer a quiet but interactive space for artists and creative workers, thinkers and planners.
Residency terms may be from one week to three weeks.
No Honey and Salt Residencies are offered in August. Residency opportunities in August are offered through the White Rabbit Annual Residency
Honey and Salt residents are accepted based on the quality of their application.
Applicants should request a specific length of residency and submit a brief statement of purpose and the dates requested.
The application can be made through email (email@example.com) or through this online form.
Applications will be reviewed and applicants notified within 10 days of receipt.
Resident artists have a choice of accommodations: the white room in the main house, one of two small lofts in the Green House or “Candle”, the tiny cabin in the woods built for one person.
The Landing Room
If you need the comfort of an interior space, the Landing Room is brightly lit, has access to a full washroom and is conveniently close to everything. It has a double bed and lots of room for your gear.
Tiny Cabins Tiny primitive cabins in the woods a stone’s throw from the house.
Candle is a bed with a roof and has big windows looking down on the stream.
The Beebarn is in elevated above the apple orchard for a beautiful view of the Bay.
Residents will be provided with a work-station in the lower studio where they can leave tools and projects. However, residents are expected to keep their work area clean and orderly.
The Honey and Salt residencies program is not a commercial project. Red Clay only charges a modest fee to help support the cost of the facility.
There are no paid staff or housekeepers, we are welcoming you into our homestead, it’s not much but it’s paradise.
Residency fees are as follows:
Cost per week:
Private Rooms $ 80
Tiny Cabins $ 70
Dorm Bed in the main house $ 60
Dorm Bed in the greenhouse $ 60
Camping Fees $ 40

Facilities include; cooking, internet, solar shower & studio space.
Basic supplies such as toilette paper and cleaning supplies are provided.
Food, transportation, and workshops not included.
Fees are low because we are busy making art. We therefore, ask residents to try to be self-sufficient and offer mutual support.
During the season, there are a number of scheduled weekend workshops. These workshops tend to bring a group of 10-15 people to the property. Resident artists can either pay a partial fee to participate, volunteer as a support person, or work on their own.
Everyone is responsible for bringing their own food.
The kitchen is well stocked with spices and dry goods (rice, flour, chick peas, lentils and beans) and residents may use the kitchen inventory provided they restock. Restocking should be done before a resident leaves.
We often divide the preparation of meals into teams. The system is simple: if you are sharing in these meals please be sure that you are providing food, as well as, consuming it, this usually works out to cooking every other day or so. If you have severe allergies please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know in advance.
If you have severe allergies please contact email@example.com and let us know in advance.

New York Arts Practicum, Call for Applications Summer 2017
New York City, June 5, 2017 – July 28, 2017
Application Deadline: March 13, 2017
Apply now to the 2017 New York Arts Practicum, a summer arts institute where participants experientially learn to bridge their lives as art students into lives as artists in the world. The program is structured around apprenticeships with mentor artists, a critique seminar where participants produce work without access to their institutional facilities, and site visits to artist workspaces, galleries, and museums.
The intensive eight-week program offers participants a structured environment to experience the challenges of life as an artist and demystifies the many ways one can be an artist today. Mentees work in their mentor’s studio two to three days per week, meet Monday and Tuesday evenings for a critique seminar, and convene Fridays for site visits. Past participants called the experience: demystifying, life changing, and an inspirational reality check.
Curious about the program and application process? Join Program Director Michael Mandiberg for a Google Hangout on Saturday, March 4th at 3:00 PM EST. RSVP to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mentors lead critiques structured around developing strategies for creating work without institutional studio facilities. Practicum mentors lead seminars on their work, or related topic; these sessions are intimate views into their in-progress work, with a focus on process. By working with an artist on a day-to-day basis, participants gain a view of their near futures as artists, learning models for negotiating a creative life outside of school.
