ARTIST RESIDENCY

Sims Ceramics Artist Residency invites creative minds attuned to the theme: reconnecting with the self.

 

OPENING SOON

 

Sims Ceramics Artist Residency, welcomes creative minds from all around the world, whether art is your profession or hobby, all forms of creativity and artistic expression are invited. 

The centre is perched at the top of a hill, surrounded by tall trees. It is located at the edge of the extraordinary Cradle of Humankind landscape, far from the hustle and bustle of city life. Here you can enjoy silence (with the occasional sounds from the animals we share the space with), be in stillness, breathe in the fresh air, garden, enjoy the therapeutic benefits of horse riding, and venture on walks. 

The main intention of Sims Ceramics Artist Residency is to create a space where creatives can reconnect with the self, with no stress and distractions coming from the outside. Sims Ceramics Artist Residency embraces mindfulness, self love, growth, healing, and kindness, and therefore focuses on the artist, rather than the artist's output alone. 

Creatives who are working on solo or collaborative projects are both welcome. The residency house is intimate and offers working and living facilities. It can host 3 artists, each with private bedrooms. There is a large social studio space to support each creative project, with 24/7 access.
