Friends & Resources
Alliance of Artist Communities is a great resource for residencies all over the United States. Holly House is listed!
Hypatia-in-the-Woods is located outside of Shelton, Washington, part of the region known as South Puget Sound.
Hypatia Trust in Cornwall, England, directed by Melissa Hardie, a friend of Elspeth’s, was one of the main inspirations for Hypatia-in-the-Woods. “The Hypatia Trust was created to collect, and make available, published and personal documentation about the achievements of women in every aspect of their lives.
The historical person, Hypatia, is the subject of the 2009 movie, Agora, starring Rachel Weisz.
