Residencies are offered from May to December. The typical residency lasts four weeks and includes six artists, all of whom arrive and depart at the same time, ensuring a deeply shared experience. Residents are given a private bedroom in a renovated 1840s farmhouse, a private studio, and chef-prepared dinners four nights a week.
 .
Shared amenities include a communal kitchen, common area, library, wireless internet, and a workshop outfitted with tools, materials, equipment and an electric kiln. The music studios are equipped with pianos, digital keyboards, hardware for recording, sequencing and sound manipulation, and a collection of percussion and obscure instruments.
 .
The residency is self-directed and non-judgmental. You decide what you’re going to work on and when. I-Park’s resourceful staff is devoted to providing each artist with a fulfilling, productive and comfortable residency experience. We welcome ambitious installation projects on the I-Park grounds, and will furnish materials, equipment and labor for approved projects.
 .
Each residency concludes with an Open Studios event, in which members of the public are invited to meet the artists, experience their work and explore the I-Park grounds.
.
Residencies are free of charge, except for a $35 application fee to help defray the cost of the selection panels. Artists must pay for their own supplies and transportation to and from the area. Complimentary shuttle service to a Connecticut airport or bus/train station is offered at the beginning and end of each session.
Since its founding in 2001, I-Park has sponsored more than 850 residencies, with approximately one-third of the artists coming from outside the United States.
 .
In 2018, I-Park will host its biannual Composers + Musicians Collaborative Residency. This two-week program pairs five composers with a well-established chamber ensemble, allowing the composers to hear their work performed while they create it. This collaboration culminates in meticulously rehearsed performances in Connecticut and New York City. Visit i-park.org for application instructions.
 .
In 2019, I-Park will host its seventh Site-Responsive Art Biennale, welcoming a dozen artists for a three-week residency devoted to creating site-responsive works within I-Park’s natural and built environments. Artists representing all five of I-Park’s creative disciplines, as well as performance art, are welcome to apply.
