Artist in Residency
Over the years we have provided the space for artists of many different disciplines (performing art, clown, photography, circus, film, metal, textiles, dance, puppetry, theatre, writing, music, murals, comics, multidisciplinary, and more!) to create. We take solo artists as well as groups, and our timelines can be flexible to fit your project. Read on to discover more about the program and our facilities.
Our largest indoor studio space is a 1,000 sq ft (22’ by 45’) dance studio. It has linoleum-topped sprung wood dance floor, sunlight, radiant floor heating, 15’ of mirrors, two beams for aerial rigging, a piano, and a stereo. This space is available and accessible 24 hrs a day (quiet hours from 11:11 pm to 8:08 am) except when booked privately (typically 0 to 4 hrs a week). The artist in residence gets 0 to 2 hrs of reserved private rehearsal time per day free of charge or additional hours at $15/hr. When not booked, the studio is shared with residents. Additionally, we have a wood-stove-heated visual art and music yurt with piano and other instruments. We have a sewing nook/craft nook that is above the studio. Outdoors (when the weather allows) we have a large covered festival stage, a rustic saloon stage, a lake with a large floating dock, a pirate ship, and 60 plus acres of woods, trails, roads and wetlands to explore.
Our dedicated artist in resident room is a converted 17′ travel trailer with bed, desk, chair, wood stove and power. Artists may also request/propose tent camping, car camping, etc. For cooking we have a large shared kitchen space and stocked with bulk organic foods (grains, oils, spices, baking ingredients, etc). Commercial-size coin operated washer and dryer. Indoor and (seasonal) outdoor shower. Indoor toilet and outdoor (seasonal) toilets. We have a community tool shed (with all the left handed gloves one could need!). Other spaces may be available by request so let us know about your project and we will see if we can accommodate!
