WILD PLUM ARTS offer an ideal working environment for professional music creators. We provide a creative work space – a “think” space. There is no obligation or expectation that the artists complete work while at the residency.
We offer free accommodation, meals, and private workspaces for up to six artists per week, in four houses belonging to Britten Pears Arts – three next to The Red House itself, and the fourth at Imogen Holst’s House in Aldeburgh. Two of the houses present ideal opportunities for artists who are collaborating on a project.
Residencies last for six nights.
This year’s residencies are:
August: 2nd to 8th, 9th to 15th, 16th to 22nd, 23rd to 29th.
A day at The Red House follows a simple structure: breakfast and lunch are supplied to be eaten in the individual houses at the artist’s own schedule, and dinner is hosted by us in Home Reach, when we hope all the artists will join us. After a day of solitude we find it valuable to share not only food, but also ideas and experiences. Occasionally we invite people from the music sector to join us for dinner. Thursday is a night off when everyone can either enjoy an evening in town, or cater for themselves with food we provide. Much of the food we prepare comes from the kitchen garden of The Red House.
