Summerwork @ The Farm (5)
OREGON, WI – August 3-8, 2009

Summerwork@The Farm is a fluid, process oriented retreat/workspace that is open to anyone wishing to participate in a focused, reflective, supportive and creative environment in rural Wisconsin.  It is a non-genre specific working environment in which there are no hard and fast boundaries, rather, porous membranes of artistic practice that welcome overlap and stresses mentoring and collaboration.  Essentially, it is a retreat that offers creative, unfettered time without expectations, within an intentional community of (usually) 10-12 artists of all disciplines who come from around the world and locally as well.  It is about creating a friendly, supportive community in which participants have the opportunity to interact with other artists, try out new ideas, share their work and ideas with others and cook and eat long artful meals together from an organic garden.  We support a hybrid art/life practice. Summerwork @ The Farm is set within the rolling hills of Oregon, Wisconsin, near Madison.  The Farm includes a performance space, art studio, wood shop, multi-media lab and organic garden on 5 acres surrounded by farmland.  The program provides a resource of time and space for artists to remove themselves from day to day necessities and reflect upon the creative process that is an essential catalyst for artistic development.
