Stiwdio Maelor was established in July 2014 by Australian artist Veronica Calarco to provide residency opportunities for artists and writers from the UK and other parts of the world.
Stiwdio Maelor offers selected artists and writers time and space out of their normal life to focus on the development of their work and explore the beautiful landscape of mid Wales. Residencies are from two to twelve weeks and provide artists and writers the experience of working alongside other artists of different disciplines and at different stages in their careers.
As an independent, self-funded project, Stiwdio Maelor seeks to operate ecologically and sustainably on a not for profit basis. To this end, resident artists pay a contribution towards their accommodation and are requested to be as respectful of the environment as possible whilst at Maelor.
Artists often donate saleable works, which when sold provide funds to support a return visit by the artist at a future date. Residency rates are kept as low as possible so that all creators can take advantage of the project.
As the support for Stiwdio Maelor grows, we hope to expand its opportunities and programs.
