Newledo Exploration Hub, an 18 acre former dairy farm, 3 miles from the Oregon coast, is offering a residency for artists and makers with a focus on regenerative practices and/or the environment.
Newledo is located just 3 mile from the Pacific Ocean and quaint fishing community of Newport, Oregon. Stunning scenery and wildlife abound, from a resident elk herd that frequents the farm to wide open beaches to Yaquina Bay, a small fishing harbor and home to sea lions and seals.
In addition to the artist residency, we’re offering an emerging farmer residency and outreach to early stage clean energy innovators. Our vision is to bring together practitioners in seemingly disparate fields, in belief that unique synergy and innovation can come from cross pollination.
In addition to furnished housing, Newledo residents would have access to the following:
Studio space in the barn, use of the wood shop and opportunity for installation and demonstration of early concepts, prototypes or developed projects, in most areas of the 18 acre site including the farmhouse, 2 ponds, 2 creeks and pasture areas.
Newledo’s secondary mission is to be open to the public for immersive learning and first hand experience with regenerative practices. This also provides an opportunity for the residents to get exposure, feedback and interest on the part of the public and supporters.
Residencies available for the week, month or year, depending on the need of the artist or maker.
