* If any artist needs additional materials or tools for personal projects, they will need to bring them along with them. The location of the residency place is in a rural environment, therefore, it might be complicated to find very specific materials. However, we will do our best to help artists with their personal projects and the materials needed, we strongly advice to let us know on advance about this so we can determine if it is best to bring stuff or we can easily find here.
