A Focus on Process
Greywood Arts provides an opportunity to focus on process. Work at any stage of development is welcome, so long as the project is compelling. The vital nature of a project supersedes the product here, and we invite new work as well as work that revisits or reworks prior ideas.
Greywood Arts is a site for the exchange of ideas. We value an articulate and transparent process – one that acknowledges confusion, not knowing, spontaneity, strategy, setting parameters, etc. We all become richer when we share our experiences.
We welcome collaborative and interdisciplinary projects and hope to be a site for honing skills like communication, negotiation, and problem solving. We are a place to explore the best method or medium to deliver a concept.
We encourage artists to take risks, play, experiment, and test things out. Failure is okay, as long as we learn from it.
Greywood Arts is young, in progress. We are learning ourselves. We invite artists to give input and help shape the space and the program for future participants.
Note: We are committed to developing a service that is accessible to artists, and regret that we are not yet able to accommodate individuals with mobility disabilities as bedrooms and studios are on the first and second floors (2nd/3rd floors US).
