Cabin-Time is a roaming creative residency to remote places.
Through work and play that is both off-the-grid and on-the-land, Cabin-Time provides an opportunity for creative experimentation, adventures in landscape, and forever friendships.
Cabin-Time invites artists, designers, writers, musicians, scientists, sign-painters, bird-watchers, cheerleaders, schemers and dreamers to make site-specific work in cooperative intentional isolation. Conscientious environmental stewardship is a core principle of Cabin-Time. Together, we work to set up camp, share chores, cook group meals, and help each other develop our ideas. Cabin-Time hosts residencies bi-annually, one in the winter and one in the summer. The number of creatives invited to each residency varies by location and degree of isolation.
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 prepare supplies/materials.
We typically field around 100 applications for each residency, which is curated down to 6-9 invited residents.
