We’re looking for visionaries. Artists. Makers. Explorers of the miraculously phenomenal.  The ones who push the boundaries, who enlarge our space with new ideas, expand our sense of what is possible. 

A fresh perspective from the American West

Brighter skies. Wider horizons. Clear thinking. Time to roll up your sleeves and get to work. On the edge of the continent, we invite you to expand the frontier of the art world. Forty minutes south of San Francisco, our studio is located along the ocean in Half Moon Bay.​

During your residency, you’ll have the ability to create art surrounded by rugged coastline and mountains. Work with passion and purpose. Engage with other participating artists. Collaborate, converse, build relationships, and be open to possibility.


Following your residency you have the opportunity to curate your own show at Art Ventures gallery in Menlo Park, CA. Centered in the heart of Silicon Valley, Menlo Park is home to Facebook, Apple, Google, Tesla, and many more. You won’t find skyscrapers here. Instead this low-rise landscape houses a mash up of startups, tech visionaries and entrepreneurs eager for the next new thing.

Calling artists, change makers and ocean lovers to join Sail Britain’s interdisciplinary creative programme in 2019! We will be undertaking a series of voyages on the West Coast of Scotland, exploring the ocean, the coastline, it’s ecology and communities. Join us onboard!

Sail Britain is an interdisciplinary project working towards positive change for the oceans through sailing, creative practice and the development and exchange of ideas. Examining our relationship with the sea while learning how to sail an ocean-going vessel allows privileged insights into an inaccessible environment. The programme will work with crew members from the arts, sciences and communities to explore issues such as marine plastic pollution, Climate Change, singing on the sea, the cultural importance of islands, and what it means to be small on a big Blue Planet!

The voyage will take place in one week legs from late April till September. Different sections focus on different themes, but all follow our strong creative and social ethos in an inclusive environment.
