Situated on Canada's beautiful west coast Salt Spring Island, we work and create on the unceded territories of the Hul'qumi'num and SENĆOŦEN speaking peoples. Here you will find a sanctuary to breathe, dream, experiment, create and play.

Founders William Mackwood and Gwenyth Dobie are both extremely experienced in the development of new work through their company Out of the Box Productions and having been on Faculty at York University's Theatre and Dance Departments. William and Gwenyth have delved into the worlds of Dance, Theatre, Music, Interactive Stage, Immersive and Site-Specific creation, and we welcome applications from emerging and established artists of all performance based practices.

With continuing challenges this world faces, we have had 6 outstanding established and emerging artists join us for our first, inaugural season at Woodland Farm Artist Residency. You can read about them more here.
