Applications for the 2015 Season are now closed.
Artistic residencies provide artists the opportunity to create away from the bustle of everday 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.
Artistic 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.
The Working Farm
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.
Nonprofit and NGO Retreats
Nonprofit and NGO retreats provide organizations the opportunity to spend time at the farm for purposes of strategic planning, creative problem solving, training, and team building.
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.
Trade a day away from your office routine for time with your coworkers at SPACE on Ryder Farm in Brewster, NY, an hour train ride north of NYC. Host meetings and workshops indoors and out. Reinvigorate your and your coworkers' spirits and realize your organization's full potential.
