CREATIVE

RESIDENCY PROGRAM

An artist residency, not just for artists. 

An Artist Residency 
not just for artists?

We think revaluing creative thought & action is essential to rebalancing our planet.  That means the work of the educator, the economist, the lawyer, the mother is just as creative as any. We welcome anyone working to innovate, re-evaluate, rebuild or straight up be creative in their work. 

The Creative Residency Program is designed to span across many mediums and designations of creativity. 

Big projects.  Small Projects. Collaborations.  Solo work.

A place to delve into research.  To design new systems. To explore new materials.  To organize for climate change.  To write new policy.  To work on a film.  To build curriculum.  To re-envision the economy.  To unpack democracy.  To choreograph a new piece.  To record an album.  To practice new agriculture techniques.  To study the effects of light on your spine or solar flares for an institution.  To find cross-over with perspectives from other fields. 

"Holes in the Wall Collective provided space, time, deep curiosity, and a nurturing community, resulting in a whirlwind of extremes in my art practice: deep field (and soil) research, rigorous tinkering, fruitful experimentation, autopoietic art-making, active becoming of other, and continuous  interspecies mingling. It was rejuvenating and exhausting; an igniting experience."
Dana Hemes • Exquisite Corpus 2016

We welcome all creatives

to apply.

Expanding our residency to those working in science, policy, economics, mathematics, education, research, activism, pedagogy, and technology in addition to the more known forms of creative practice in the visual arts, writing, performance & music.  We then curate residents across disciplines to engage with their practice and share collective space.

It could be the start of a bad joke...
or the start of something really interesting.
What happens when you get a scientist, a dancer, a farmer and a programmer in a room together? 

Even though the future is uncertain, in this time of Coronavirus, we look forward to the time we can gather together again knowing it will be more important than ever. 

IN TIME OF QUARANTINE

The Creative Residency Program will be housed at the future site for the Holes in the Wall Collective Center for Creative Research, Reflection & Action.
