Our low residency format is developed with the working artist in mind:
"The first week of our residency was so unexpected—well organized and immediately drawing our group into the forefront of the newest art trends.

"The information contained within the program filled the gaps left by my previous educational experiences. The low-residency aspect was an added bonus, allowing for international diversity. While continuing to work professionally in different locations around the world, my Cohort collaborated extremely well together."
