Artistic Residencies and The Working Farm

Artistic residencies provide artists the opportunity to create away from the bustle of everyday life and in the company of other artists. Residencies are grounded in three farm fresh meals per day. Artists have flexibility and are strongly encouraged to structure their days to best suit the needs of their project. The Working Farm is SPACE on Ryder Farm's resident writers group. A new group gathers each season for a three-to-five week residency (housing, food, and artistic resources provided) on Ryder Farm. 


Company Retreats

Artistic company retreats provide organizations the opportunity to spend time at the farm for purposes of season planning, strategic planning, creative problem solving, training, and team building.


Creative Solutions Symposium

As part of our Nonprofit and NGO retreats, SPACE hosts a fully subsidized week long residency for social change makers and human rights organizations. This is our Creative Solutions Symposium. If you are interested in applying for that click the link below.
