Autumn Residencies ~ 2016 

A small residency programme was started at White House Farm in February 2014 in association with the Alde Valley Spring Festival. The purpose of the residencies is to give artists, writers, musicians and other guests working in the arts time off from their daily or weekly routines - to rest, reflect and start new work. The Autumn Residencies offer time for recipients to explore the local landscape, wildlife and rural life through their various practices.
