The Oak Spring Garden Foundation Residency is a five-week interdisciplinary residency is designed to support artists, conservation practitioners, researchers, scholars, scientists or writers who are pursuing work inspired by plants, gardens and landscapes. Residents have access to a 700-acre landscape, a Biocultural Conservation Farm, a formal garden, and a library of art.
In 2021 the Oak Spring Garden Foundation will host five separate five-week interdisciplinary residencies. Each session is designed to support eight artists, conservation practitioners, researchers, scholars, scientists or writers who are pursuing work inspired by plants, gardens and landscapes. The goal of this residency program is to provide individuals with the time and space to pursue their own creative projects alongside other residents who may be examining the natural world from different perspectives. By living and working side-by-side in a supportive environment with individuals of varying backgrounds and interests, residents experience interdisciplinary inspiration and interaction.
Applicants selected for this award will receive a $2,000 individual grant.
