Program Description

TRP @ 1303 is situated in Silverton, Colorado—a remote town nestled 9,318 feet above sea level in the heart of the scenic San Juan Mountains. The Retreat @ 1303 provides studio space, generous accommodations, outdoor excursions, group gatherings, engaging dialog with a curated cohort of residents, and time to progress your own creative work... all while immersed in an inspiring, rugged landscape. An intimate, thoughtfully selected group of artists will be invited to take two weeks away from their daily lives to think and work, to engage in collective meaning-making with other artists, and to immerse themselves in Colorado's unparalleled natural landscape. While we offer studio space and we certainly encourage our residents to make use of it, the Retreat @ 1303 is not particularly production-oriented. Rather, we encourage residents to research, reflect, connect with their cohort, explore both in and outside of the studio, and to gather inspiration for current and/or upcoming projects.
