What’s in it for you to become an Artist in residence?
The TCDF Eco-Logic Community is a global network of people that believe contributing can be done in many different ways! We hope for a long term relationship with our ambassadors, volunteers and sponsors and one with mutual benefits!
There are many ways you can support charity while enjoying the benefits it brings to be part of the TCDF community as well!
If you are interested to become an artist in residence, this is what it can bring you:
A place to live and work for one month
Awaken in nature
Inspiration caused by the beauty all around you
Surrounded by goodhearted people
Getting off the beaten track feeds creativity
A reference letter (request)
Experience on your resume
Profiling & networking opportunity
Planting the seed
All the work of TCDF is made possible by many many small contributions of many people: Ambassadors who spread the word about TCDF during travels or at home, volunteers who take care of a small part of our big project, workshop leaders who use our venue, artist and guests who visit us, even if only for a short while.
One small action can have a big effect. And even if the effect is not directly visible to you please realize that without all these small actions, TCDF would not be possible.
We planted a seed and all nourishing and all drops of water will help with the growth into a strong, healthy tree that bears an abundance of sweet fruit!
Join the Artist in residence program and help our tree to grow! Sharing is caring!
