Genoa Design Musician-in-Residence Program 2022

MusicNL is pleased to once again partner with Landfall Trust of Brigus and Genoa Design International to give one MusicNL member the opportunity to spend two full weeks this summer (August 6-19) at the stunning Kent Cottage in Brigus.

The selected musician-in-residence will be provided a place to live and work, and a contribution towards food/supplies as they spend two weeks in one of the most inspiring areas of the province. The rustic cottage is in a quiet, secluded off the grid location, making this residency the perfect opportunity for a song writing retreat; however, other projects will be considered.

As part of the residency, the selected musician will also be required to lead a community outreach project. This could take the form of a workshop, a presentation, or a performance at the iconic Brigus Blueberry Festival.
