Catalyst Art RetreatFirenze, Toscana, Italy

Opportunity Description

International Deadline: July 15, 2018 – Catalyst Art Retreat is a unique opportunity for artists looking to reignite their creative spark. We have designed immersive travel art residencies allowing each artist to dedicate time to their individual practice while working alongside artist peers from around the world. During the week we facilitate creative activities and art salon discussions. Each retreat culminates in a final exhibition where the artists can share their work with the local art community.

Our vision is for artists without a full-time practice to feel encouraged and empowered. We want artists to know there are meaningful ways to engage with the art world while maintaining a full-time job or devoting time to family. We envision a global community of Catalyst artists who value travel as a conduit to inspiration and want to support each other in carving out their own individual spaces in the art world.

Imagine swimming in marble-bouldered rivers (Seravezza), cooling dips and beers at the Casa Berti pool, and long warm evenings dining beneath a pergola with one of the best views in the world. You’ll have access to a huge art studio beautifully lit with east and north facing windows. OR find a spot in the expansive grounds to use as your workspace. On the last evening we’ll host the Catalyst Art Exhibition followed by a celebratory dinner.

Visual artists, illustrators, textile artists, photographers, digital artists, crafters, makers, writers, musicians, and performers are welcome.

We welcome creatives at any skill level, but studio time will be self-directed. An artist mentor is available to lend a hand or give light instruction, but attendees are generally working at their own pace on their own work.

The spacious studio is 11 x 5 meters equipped with sturdy work tables, chairs, a utility sink, and various easels. There is a large window that opens east to an inspiring Tuscan view, and a huge skylight that brings in north light. If you have any studio equipment needs outside of what we already have, we’ll work to arrange something for you.

2,500€ to 3,000€ single occupancy. 200€ off now through July 15, 2018. Mention ArtDeadline.com during booking.
