Women Filmmakers of Color ARC Residencies available
Sept. 13 - 21, 2014
12 exceptional women artists will be invited to work on their projects at a private 100-acre farm in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont during prime New England Foliage Viewing Season. ARC Residencies offer an inspired setting for work and reflection during the day, with evening gatherings over healthy prepared meals, followed by presentations from fellow artists, plus an artist’s empowerment workshop during your stay. You will have a room (single or double) in one of three charming country houses shared with other ARC artists in a Vermont estate overlooking organic hay fields, forests, a private pond, and nearby Jay Peak Mountain. Outings to some of the nearby attractions including the Wine Route of the Brome Missiquoi region just across the Canadian border, a visit to artisanal food producers and other local attractions.
