I-Park is both an open air and a closed studio laboratory for individual creative pursuits in the fields of music composition/sound art, the visual arts, architecture, moving image, creative writing and landscape/garden/ecological design. It also initiates and sponsors specially-themed inter-disciplinary and collaborative projects for the purpose of moving these ideas out of the laboratory and bringing them to life in the field.
I-Park supports these investigations through its international artists-in-residence program, the aesthetic engagement of its natural and built environments and with on-site exhibitions, performances and collegial exchanges.
I-Park, located in rural East Haddam, CT (U.S.), offers a multi-disciplinary artists-in-residence program. The program is open to those working in the following creative disciplines: visual artists, creative writing, music composition/sound art, architecture, moving image and landscape/garden/ecological design. Self-directed residencies are offered from May through November. Most residencies are 4-weeks in duration. International applicants are welcome.
I-Park provides comfortable, private living quarters in an 1850’s era farmhouse, a private studio space and a food program. In addition to attentive staff support, shared workshop space and an array of tools, equipment and site materials are available on request.
Work samples are evaluated through a competitive, juried process. A modest application fee helps defray the cost of the independent selection panels. Accepted artists are responsible for their own work materials as well as transportation to and from the area. The program is otherwise offered at no cost to invitees.
I-Park also offers a special Environmental Art Program (residency and exhibition) biennially for which site-responsive proposals are solicited from all the disciplines that the program supports, plus performance art.
