Residency at Yaddo, USA May-June 2019

Ailís is very grateful to Yaddo Artist Colony in Saratoga Springs, New York State, USA for inviting her to spend a month to focus on her work and to ArtsAdmin Unlimited UK for supporting her travel to the USA to enable her to take up this residency. 

“Yaddo holds the distinction of being the country’s first artist colony. Since 1926, it has been a home for artists of all disciplines to retreat and create. Thanks to the generous support of many individuals and foundations, this non-profit organization provides time and studio space to individual artists in a supportive communal setting. In its ten-decade history, notable artists such as Langston Hughes, James Baldwin, Truman Capote, Carson McCullers, Patricia Highsmith, Flannery O’Connor and Leonard Bernstein are just a few of the luminaries that have called Yaddo, and its 400-acre estate in Saratoga Springs, an artistic and creative home.”
