Posted by: Mudhouse Residency
Deadline: Mon, January 15th, 2018
The Mudhouse Residency, in the rural mountain village of Agios Ioannis, Crete, is now accepting applications for its Studio Residency and Independant Residency programs, for both summer 2018 sessions; June 18- July 2 and July 9- July 23. Please visit our application page on our website to apply online.
The Studio Residency, $2200 USD, includes group meals, lodging and shared studio workspace for the entire 2 week duration. The Independent Residency, $1800 USD, includes group meals and lodging, without the studio component. Both residencies provide the artist the opportunity to present an artist-led talk or reading and participate in the closing exhibition.
The Mudhouse offers two distinct programs based on the individual needs of the artist-in-residence. The Studio Residency offers visual artists the time and the studio space to develop a body of work and the Independent Residency is ideal for non-studio artists who desire the opportunity to partake in the residency community, but crave the solitude of the mountain village to realize their project. Additionally, there is the opportunity for any artist-in-residence to participate in workshops in painting, drawing and printmaking.
The Mudhouse Residency is designed to provide a cultural immersion: living, working and dining in the mountain village of Agios Ioannis. The residency is inclusive to a number of artistic disciplines, with the facilities to accommodate studio artists, photographers, writers, choreographers and composers. Meals are served family style and group trips have been organized to tour the ancient Minoan ruins at Mochlos, visit the Florentine monastery at Toplou, swim in the blue green waters of the Libyan sea and hike across the Thripti mountain range. At the end of each session an exhibition is mounted at the Agios Ioannis Cultural Center, with a corresponding reception in which the residents of the village and surrounding villages are invited to celebrate with the artists.
