The Crespo Foundation’s ArtNature/NatureArt residency program takes place in Glenkeen Garden, West Cork, south coast of Ireland. Art collectives working in different disciplines are invited to apply to spend two to three months staying and working at the inspiring Glenkeen Garden. Glenkeen Garden, a 30-hectare estate in Roaringwater Bay, designed by the Foundation’s founder and photographer Ulrike Crespo and her partner Michael Satke, is intended to be a platform for artists in dialogue with scientists to develop projects in the context of ArtNature/NatureArt.

The program is intended for visual artists (painting, drawing, installation, video, photography), composers/sound artists and writers. Interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary work is particularly welcome. Applications are only permitted as a group of at least two and a maximum of five people. The competition is open to artists from Europe and Russia. Residencies are only awarded to people aged between 30 and 45. The residency covers accommodation and work space, monthly stipend of €2500 per person and travel costs for the journey to and from Glenkeen Garden.
