I just received a lovely email from Ayumi Horie who is International Center for Ceramics- Guldagergaard in Denmark. It has come up in many many conversations about good residency programs as one of the best. I know that Jeanne Quinn and Anders Rhuwald both enjoyed their time there as well. It is a distant (or maybe not so distant) dream of mine to attend... Here are some pictures courtesy of Ayumi.
And some information about the residency:
JANUARY - OCTOBER
International artists, craftsmen and designers from all over the world can apply to work in the studios and develop a specific project.
Guldagergaard gives the individual the possibility of concentrated studio work, investigation and research. The center offers a fine combination of international atmosphere and professional dialogue.
The residence program is intended for artists who wish to work independently in the studios, but applicants may want to consider the thematic programs that interest them when scheduling their residency. Calendar
Guldagergaard holds a maximum of 20 resident artists.
November 15, February 15, May 15, August 15
The Artist-in-Residence Program is supported by Guldagergaard, the local Town Council and private Funds. Guldagergaard is a non-profit-making foundation, and residencies are offered at the lowest possible rate.
In 2007-2008, the Artist-in-Residence Program is funded in part through support from the Danish Ministry of Culture.
