Winter Residency 2019/2020 | Arts Letters & Numbers | Upstate NY

Arts Letters & Numbers

No Funding
Averill Park, United States


Artists. Musicians. Composers. Thinkers. Writers. Makers. Scientists. Architects. Dreamers. The Residency is a space for individuals to have full creative agency to develop new works in a peaceful and evocative environment and to have the opportunity to develop meaningful relationships with other artists. We strive to cultivate a space that encourages collaborative and individual creation: to think, make and act alongside others within a community. With the Residency Program, artists from wide range of disciplines will be able to come together, ask and engage their questions, create and share their work. When people are free to act, interact and support one another, new works and ideas emerge.

Number of Participants

The number of artists-in-residence varies from 5-10 while we at the same time have a team on site that will be present throughout your time at Arts, Letters & Numbers. The duration of Residencies can be from 1 week to 12 weeks. All applications are reviewed on a case by case basis. Artists are expected to pursue their individual creative endeavor and many times this calls for leading a workshop, giving a lecture, sharing a film, partake in critique, exhibiting/performing work etc. These are optional but has proven to be an integral tool for artists to find inspiration and to allow others to experience the works in progress or previous works. The artist will be encouraged to propose any form of sharing suitable for their work.

Program Description

Arts Letters & Numbers is a place of creative urgency and intensity of purpose, a place to create new linkages, new pathways of understanding that embody our best hopes and aspirations. It is a place where many elements come together to co-construct questions and works, of empathy, of ethics, of imagination; it is a place to explore the nuanced fragilities in our shared stories.
