Hello, all (and by all I mean students and alumni),
I need your feedback on the idea of a potential remote residency in Northern Ireland. This residency would be an optional third residency, possibly in June, that could replace your attendance at an August or January residency, or could simply be an additional residency experience for you (and a trip to Ulster!). The residency would be open to students and alumni, as well as WCSU alumni from outside the MFA program and perhaps to the public as well. There would be a flat fee, amount TBD, and you would be responsible for your travel. Also TBD is whether we would have group accommodations on or off campus in NI or whether you would be responsible for that as well. Structure would be similar to that of our normal residencies, though likely with more free time mixed in for enjoying the host region.
I need to get a sense of how many people in the program (and among alumni) would see this as a viable possibility. If only a few people are interested, we need go no further. Please respond here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
