PILOT: Art·Space·House (ASH)
Artist Retreat 2022 (France!)
October 15-22, 2022

Six Artists. One French Farmhouse. Unlimited Potential.

A week-long, international gathering for mid-career artists and cultural workers seeking rest, rejuvenation, community, and inspiration. A group of six like-minded artists will convene with no set expectations or requirements! 

ASH is a test ground to nurture ourselves, each other, and our work, without any actionable metrics tied to the process. The process itself is life-affirming and nurturing. We practice what we wish to see in the world including; collaboration, connectivity, sustainability, healing, justice, joy, wholeness, and belonging. 


EAD Prioritizes 

  • Supporting artists of color, female-identifying, LGBTQ+, and those creating work that support and care for community 

  • Mid-career/established artists with a personal and/or independent practice

  • Environmental responsibility

  • Kindness, compassion, empathy, connectedness


  • Create funded rest + relaxation opportunity for artists

  • Develop practices that nurture the individual, group, the earth, and contribute to the kinder, more interconnected world we wish to see and contribute to

  • Develop a web of artists that continue to collaborate and support the evolution of connection-based work

  • Create beauty, healing, connection that acts as a catalyst for more beauty, healing, connection

  • Build towards a permanent space that inhabits these practices and expands upon them - continually questioning, growing, changing, adapting
