A Floating Artist Residency: Soft Opening

New Haven 06513 United States


My partner and I (Jenn and Michael, she and him) are looking for artists of any type to come aboard our fledgling artist residency on a 56' steel sailboat.  We are currently moored in New Haven CT with a plan to head south again at the beginning of November.  Last December we motored to Charleston SC and got back a month ago, and are almost ready to host artists.  I'm looking for technically skilled artists to help us with the construction as well, while taking the opportunity to focus on your practice.  Artists of all types can apply, please be 21 and over.  Check out our website for more information www.adriftproject.com and follow us on instagram @adriftprojectresidency    Being able to help with social media and documentation is also a bonus.

For this 'soft opening' we are flexible with schedules and can accommodate from a week to a month or more.  The official residency program wouldn't begin until early 2024.

You would be responsible for travel and your share of food, but your stay aboard is free if you are willing to help us work on the boat ~15-20 hrs a week (weather depending).

We are a non profit 501c(3) organization and can accept tax deductible donations.

To apply, email a brief cover letter explaining your interest in a floating artist residency along with your website and/or links to your portfolio, CV, and artist statement.
