SSB AWAY: Residency at Podere Malabiccia


On a 40-acre working olive oil farm just outside the tiny hamlet of Petroio, Some Serious Business and artist Carey Maxon offer artists a tranquil sanctuary: a small stone cottage set in the heart of the sensory delights of Tuscan country life. From this charming cottage artists have the opportunity for creative exploration in any direction.

The residency will take place from 6 - 27 June 2020.


Eligibility: writers, visual artists, composers, musicians, performance artists, architects, designers, activists, curators, and art workers of any kind; as well as thought leaders, spiritual teachers, and others working to foster mutual respect and understanding. Preference will be given to mid-career artists and those seasoned in their chosen field.

The three-week residency is entirely self-directed. The resident must be self-sufficient and comfortable with solitude. Materials about the region will be provided in advance. However, it is up to each individual to structure their time, shop and prepare meals, and make arrangements for transportation and activities beyond the farm.


SSB offers a $1,000 artist stipend along with this residency. Airfare and car rental are not included.
