Hopewell's visiting artist program is designed to foster an alliance between the creative arts and wellness. They are seeking artists who value the connection between mental health and artistic expression, and who are interested in exploring this intersection through instruction, collaboration, and community engagement. Through this program, it is their vision to connect individuals experiencing mental illness with creative and innovative approaches to healing and recovery. As a visiting artist, you will be invited to stay on the farm in a private apartment for the duration of your artist workshop. Meals with the community will be provided, and artists will have access to studio space as well as the rest of our 325 acre working farm, including hiking trails, ponds, and natural sanctuaries. Artists will be expected to run a minimum 2 day workshop that will provide instruction of their craft to our residents. Projects may be tailored to individual or group work. Artists will also be asked to donate a creative piece of their own making that will reflect the visiting artist experience. Cost of supplies, up to $500, for running the workshop will be covered by Hopewell and artists will receive an additional $500 stipend at the completion of their stay. Rolling submission process and flexible scheduling.
