We offer an artist residence, which we call Art Hermitage, free of charge to artists who want to dedicate some time fully to the arts.
The residence is a small house with a living/bed room, a kitchen and a bathroom. It is located on a secluded property of about 6.000 square meters surrounded by fields and woods. That is why there also might be spiders, mosquitos and flies.
The hermitage offers a quiet place for contemplation without internet, radio or TV to reduce the media distractions of everyday life. And if you like, you can also get some donkeys as pets to live on the property. Quite likely that you'll make friends in the time you're here.
Everyone who wants to live out their creative streak may apply – not matter how old and which background. We are looking forward to artists of visual arts, music, performing arts, authors as well as all other fields of arts.
You will not get an additional financial support and the works will either remain with you or can be left with the association. We are happy if you leave something here that we can display in our art barn or on our website, but that is no requirement for your stay.
You can apply for the residence anytime. Please include the following in your application:
- Description of your art (1 page)
- Date and duration of your proposed stay
- Artistic background
We are looking forward to your application! If you'd like to get to know us and the place before, you're welcome to visit. Just let us know in advance by email (email@example.com).
