About Hammock Residency
Hammock Residency was formed in 2006 and emerged publicly in 2009. Since then it has hosted over 75 artists and their thoughts, processes, projects (when desired) and endless tangents. It provides an environment that is non-coercive, participant-based and co-creative, has no rules (but many negotiations which are unique to each resident and Hammock needs) and offers whatever it can in the space/time at hand.
