Carpe diem residency is an artist-in-residence programs for artists, designed to provide an enriching time and space away from their usual social environment and domestic obligations. The idea behind the program is to facilitate a stimulating eco-system or co-inhabiting space for artists to participate, research, produce and reflect on an emerging body of work. It allows a fellow artist to explore his/her practice within another community of artists; meeting new people, using new materials and experiencing life organically in a new location.
The intention is to provide the artists with a clutter-free space (in mind and in geography) built with both the silences of isolation and enriching conversations with fellow artists, inching you closer to your project every passing moment. Here, you are on a journey of looking inward, where you share your thoughts, ideas, and desires with fellow artists to experience a collective sense of freedom.
We at Carpe diem strongly believe that the best of your creative instincts can be nurtured when you elevate your experiences in a holistic way. Let there be a parallel universe where you travel with your art from inception to culmination and beyond!
There are so many ways to get involved with our arts community. Drop us a line to find out about upcoming residencies, events, and volunteer opportunities!
