To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Tracy & Edwin's collaborative art practice in 2017, The Museum of Loss and Renewal has launched a residency programme.
Each residency offers artists, curators, musicians and writers uninterrupted periods of time to reflect on, produce, and share their work. Accommodation in a recently refurbished house consists of multiple bedrooms, clean work space, central heating and internet. Additional studio space is located 2 minutes walk from the house. Engagement with the natural world begins on the doorstep, and participation in a strong local walking culture brings people and place together, fuelling conversation, exchange and friendships.
The location is Collemacchia, a small village within Italy's National Park of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise, a protected area of exceptional significance and beauty. In the local village of Filignano (1km from Collemacchia) a range of amenities is available: post office, chemist, mini-supermarket, bar, butcher, hotel, town square.
Collemacchia and Filignano are largely tri-lingual Italian-French-English due to the large community of Filignano emigrants who continually move between Scotland and other European nations.
