Open Call for Artist Residency Fall/Winter 2023 / Residencies
March 15, 2024
Organization Name: Arts, Letters, and Numbers
Organization Location: Averill Park, New York
Arts Letters & Numbers was founded in 2011. From the start the summer workshops were the driving force of the organization. When the facilities grew so did the program and in 2015 the first Artist in Residence arrived. Since then we have cultivated the program to encourage individual and collaborative creation: to think, make and act alongside others within a community. The program has attracted artists from a wide range of disciplines from around the world to ask and engage their questions, to create and share their work. When people are free to interact with and support one another new works and ideas emerge.
Arts Letters & Numbers is a place of creative urgency and intensity of purpose, a place to create new linkages, new thought processes and pathways of understanding that embody our best hopes and aspirations. It is a place where elements come together to co-construct questions and works, and of empathy, ethics, and imagination; it is a place to explore the nuanced fragilities in our shared stories.
We are situated within an enthusiastic and supportive community in rural Upstate New York that is highly active in the programming of Arts Letters & Numbers, including events, courses, and workshops that run in parallel to and interweave with the Residency Program at various times throughout the year. As an Artist in Residence you will be encouraged to participate in programs where they happen and to even host similar experiences if you are so inclined.
