VISITING ARTIST OPPORTUNITY
January 29, 2020
Hopewell is currently seeking applicants for our 2020 Visiting Artist Program. Our visiting artist program is designed to foster an alliance between the creative arts and wellness. We 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 our 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 306 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. To learn more about the type of work we do at Hopewell, please visit our website at www.hopewellcommunity.org.
To apply for our visiting artist program, please submit: • Resume or CV • Letter of intent stating your specific interest in working with Hopewell and how involvement will influence your work • Three professional references • Portfolio work that clearly demonstrates what you will provide for the workshop
Submissions and any other inquires may be sent to Mary Cassidy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
