SOU’WESTER ARTS WEEK: the Sou’wester will be given over to artists and art collectives for a week of residency work and a weekend of open houses and public performances.

The goal of this event is to highlight the creative process and the experiential nature of the Sou’wester Residency Program. Walking into an active creative process reveals valuable intersections among artists as well as with the public. Experience these living artifacts at the open studios and weekend performances.

Preference will be given to artists who will dig deep into their studio experience for the week and innovate in translating that experience for the public during the open house.

ARTS WEEK RESIDENCIES will be at a reduced cost of $200-$300 for the duration of the event. Some sponsorships are available.
