PROGRAMS

Time at SPACE provides artists and innovators the opportunity to create away from the stress and noise of everyday life in the company of others. Residencies are centered around three farm fresh meals per day. Residents have flexibility and are strongly encouraged to structure their days to best suit the needs of their project. Residencies culminate in informal sharings of the work.
