A creative retreat for experienced artists


SPACE/TIME is a 5 day creative retreat for experienced artists from all disciplines that asks the question “How does an artist keep developing?”

It aims to refresh participants through a stimulating and provocative examination of creativity. During the residency, we will explore how creativity can be nourished and how artists can continue to challenge themselves to develop.

The residency combines facilitated dialogue - built around a series of provocations and questions - with time for individual reflection and work. It is led by Nicholas Bone and Alice McGrath.

Participation in Space/Time is open to experienced artists and selection is through an open call process.

The next most recent Space/Time retreat was in Cromarty in March 2016. The participating artists are: Anne Milne, Annie George, Bill Thompson, Merav Israel, Ros Steen, and Shona Reppe

The next Space/Time retreat will be at Cove Park in October 2016.

The Autumn 2015 and 2016 retreats are presented in partnership with Cove Park.
