Red Clay is an art space and organic farm overlooking the Bay of Fundy. The facility hosts collaborative residencies from July to September and self-directed residencies throughout the year. Located in rural Nova Scotia, far enough from the urban buzz to allow artists to feel a connection, even if momentarily, with the land, the forest and the coast, it is for artists who seek a quite space to work.
Beginning in 2019, Red Clay is hosting collaborative, media-specific 6-day residencies. These residencies encourage artists to develop their work within a specific media or theme. Similar to the White Rabbit project, collaborative residencies offer both an opportunity to do work in a rural environment and to share ideas with other artists. Media specific residencies are collaborative, both in living, making meals and organizing. Red Clay 6-day residencies are $146.00 and include cabin or loft accommodations, use of all Red Clay facilities and spaces, paths, sauna, swimming ponds etc. They also offer artists an opportunity to participate in Red Clay’s farm-to-table organic produce. There will be a senior artist in residence, who during each residency who will help to facilitate forums and discussion. For more information see Red Clay Residencies
