Your artistic home away from home.

Artistic Residencies

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

SPACE on Ryder Farm's non-profit residency and retreat season runs each year from June through October.

Artistic residencies provide artists the opportunity to create away from the bustle of everyday life and in the company of other artists. Residencies are grounded in three farm-fresh meals per day. Artists have flexibility and are strongly encouraged to structure their days to best suit the needs of their project. Artistic residencies culminate in informal sharings of what each resident has worked on during their time at SPACE.

Artistic residencies are granted to individuals and groups in accord with SPACE's mission. Priority in SPACE's selection process is given to applications that include detailed and distinctive goals for their residency.

All artistic residencies are subsidized. Residents pay a minimal nightly fee of $55 to offset the cost of their stay. Additionally, residents cover their travel to and from the farm. A round-trip off-peak ticket from Grand Central Station to Brewster Station is $26.50. There are some fully-subsidized artistic residencies available upon invitation.
