Fall 2019 Decelerator Program / Residencies
August 1, 2019
Organization Name: The Strange
Organization Location: Catskill Mts, NY
The Strange’s “Decelerator” is a retreat/residency hybrid for those seeking a chance to slow down and focus on an ambitious creative undertaking from a beautiful location in the mountains. This fall’s program will specifically be made available to practitioners whose work extends beyond themselves by generating critical opportunities and support for others.
This October and November, one- to two-week residencies will be offered to a select group of radical organizers, educators, curators, editors, entrepreneurs, and other types of facilitators whose vital, inventive, and regenerative work contributes to a stronger foundation for culture and society. Through their work—such as engineering a cooperative space, developing a social practice, or launching a platform to amplify others’ voices and ideas—these practitioners selflessly give life to a more textured world. This fall, The Strange will support them by offering time, space, and encouragement to refocus on and sustain their important work.
