Residents are responsible for travel to and from the Island, for their food, and other personal expenses. Most artists provide their own transportation while on the island – whether through car rental from mainland Newfoundland, or by driving their own vehicles*. They are expected to do their share in maintaining the condition of the homes and studios they occupy, as well as its peaceful environment.
As part of our unique residency program, each artist is expected to engage with the people of Tilting during their stay. Outreach can be in the form of an artist’s talk, open house with a show of work done during your residency, performance, readings, workshops with locals, etc.
Each artist is expected to leave one piece of artwork here on the Island, upon completion of their artist residency. This work becomes a part of The Jennifer Keefe Permanent Art Collection.
