CALL FOR ARTISTS
Quote Unquote Collective is hosting their Autumn Artist Retreat on Oct. 4-9, 2015
Do you have a project you are working on, but just can’t find the time or space to really get your hands, heart, and head into it? SBAR (Stone Boat farm Artist Retreat) is an opportunity to disconnect from the outside world in order to develop your project in an extremely creative and productive environment. A collection of artists of different disciplines living and working side by side in the countryside! What more could you ask for?
The farmhouse, set in picturesque Lanark County, Ontario (approx. 3.5 hours from Toronto) sleeps ten and has a variety of different working spaces. From outdoor fields, to a workshop, to the studio (an ideal recording space), the parlour (a rehearsal room) and a variety of other nooks and crannies, there is space for all varieties of art-making. From visual artists, to writers, dancers, theatre makers, crafters, photographers, musicians, video-artists, food artists, there is nothing that is not worthy if you are willing to work.
Each day is structured as follows:
9am-1pm – Individual work
1pm-2pm – Group lunch and sharing
2pm-6pm – Individual work
6pm – Mandatory cocktail hour
7pm – Group dinner and goal setting for following day
9pm – Group activities are decided upon based on participants and curiosities (ie. Movies, night-walks, craft projects, showings, etc.)
Participation in SBAR is currently free of charge, apart from a cost-sharing of all food and beverages between participants. Ideally you have an independent way to travel to the area, but ride-sharing can be arranged if necessary.
