about us: an artist residency that really fucking cares  


We are a resilient collective. We aim to generate, adapt, and create. Our healing and gathering generate new ways of being in the world. We iterate and transmute. By cultivating collective consciousness, we aim to activate the creative practice of each participating artist. We are redistributing creative access from elitist structures and meritocratic frameworks to serve marginalized artists and communities. We seek to catalyze imaginative access, survivability, and abundance. We dream collective care into existence by prioritizing the imaginations of those whose realities are stunted by systemic oppression. Care is central. We harness and own the means of production, we facilitate access, we are compensated for our labor. Rest is practice, and care is horizontal. Activation is a portal through which to access collective abundance in real and future times.
