Arts Letters & Numbers

1 518 712 5462

The Residency at Arts Letters and Numbers is a space for individuals or groups to have full creative agency to develop new works in a a peaceful and evocative environment while developing meaningful relationships with other artists. Artists are encouraged to pursue their individual creative endeavor with the freedom to shape their workspace in the historic Faith Mills complex and with the opportunity to lead a workshop, give a talk, share a film, exhibit or perform work. The Residency cultivates a space not only for individual explorations but also collaborations, shared dinners, and community gatherings as other dimensions of the creative process.

When people are free to create, interact and support one another, new ways of thinking, making, doing, expressing, and contributing emerge.
