Cabin-Time is joining us in Green River this August!!! Below is the call for proposals. Investigate their past residencies here, specifically Cabin-Time 3, featuring our own Miles Mattison (former Epicenter Frontier Fellow). Apply and spread the world.
Cabin-Time: Green River
Green River, Utah
August 25-30, 2013
Working in collaboration with Epicenter.
Cabin-Time Art Camp is a roaming creative residency to remote places. Cabin-Time invites artists, designers, photographers, writers, musicians, craftspeople, scientists, cartographers, bird-watchers, wood-workers, planners, organizers, schemers, and dreamers to join in cooperative intentional isolation, to make site-specific work based on location and theme. Conscientious environmental stewardship is a core principle of Cabin-Time, through making work and maintaining camp. A trip specific field guide is published, compiling and archiving the work made during each expedition. Work from the residency is catalogued online and released in conjunction with the field guide.
The experience at Cabin-Time is a cooperative environment. Creatives are expected to find transportation to and from Green River, Utah. The residency fee covers co-op vegetarian meals and on-site supply needs. We work together to set up camp, share chores, cook group meals, and help each other with our ideas.
Cabin-Time: Green River will take 15 creatives to the Green River in Eastern Utah. Residents will meet in town on Saturday, August 24 and will return Saturday, August 31. We will be stationed in and around a 100+ year old stone house on the banks of the river, 11 miles north of the city in Desolation Canyon. The cost for this residency is $200.
We are looking for projects and ideas that explore the theme “Ford the River” in relation to Desolation Canyon and Green River, Utah. There are no restrictions on how you should use the theme in your project or proposal. Applications are due at 11:59pm on July 1, 2013. Selected applicants will be notified no later than July 8, 2013.
