Crojik’s Largesse, is a fund celebrating the beauty and nuance of language. It is pays homage to the original name for the residency, Crojik’s Croft.
crojik: n. A triangular sail on an old sailing ship.
largesse: n. Generosity in bestowing money or gifts upon others.
We at the The Croft Imagine the wind as a metaphor for inspiration, and that having a sail gives one the capacity to be moved by this inspiration; to harness the gift of the creative process. This largesse is for one working artist or group per a year. It consists of up to $1,200 for the creation of a new work based on the celebration of language. The recipient does not have to be in residence at The Croft, but must share their work within the Northern Michigan area. We curated this fund through applications. The applications are reviewed by a jury. We will announce the jury at the beginning of September.1st.
We will begin accepting applications for Crojik’s Largesse for 2020 in the fall of 2019. Application will be coming soon. We apologize for our shift of dates.
