where bodies & stars collide
a space making project by
an artist residency that really fucking cares
Activation Residency is a Black trans led immersive healing justice residency aiming to generate safer and more collaborative space, adapt to its residents’ needs, and create portals to futures needed now. Located in New York state’s southern Catskill mountains of Woodridge, the residency seeks to activate the creative practice of each participating resident, redistribute access, resources, and care, and experiment with the means of production. Activation Residency was founded in 2018 by futurity artist in response to the lack of creative and healing opportunities available to Black and brown trans and queer artists, activits, and community members.
