The experience at Cabin-Time is a cooperative environment. Creatives are expected to find transportation to Grand Rapids, Michigan. The residency fee covers transportation from Grand Rapids to the site, co-op vegetarian meals, cabin rental costs (when necessary), and on-site supply needs. We work as a community to set up camp, share chores, cook group meals, and help each other with our ideas. The exact number of creatives invited to each roaming residency varies by location and degree of isolation. Each residency is a separate, international call, and is open to anyone!
Cabin-Time hosts residencies bi-annually, one in the winter, one in the summer.
HOW TO APPLY:
Each creative is chosen following an open call, based on their application and proposal on the location and theme announced. Artists are chosen no later than one month prior to each residency, giving adequate time to independently and cooperatively research the chosen location and to prepare supplies/materials.
Cabin-Time 5 will be announced spring 2013. Stay tuned!
