Individual Artist and Group/Organizational Residencies

Individual Artist Residencies

Artist residencies balance group activity, personal work time, facilitated conversation, the exchange of work and performance. Creators working in any area: arts, humanities, sciences, etc. are welcome. Residencies are structured around a project’s specific needs. Days are self-directed, and could include individual/team work, afternoon excursions or on-site activity, dinners and evening gatherings with resident artists.

Tofte Lake Center is family-friendly. Artists in residence are welcome to bring their families when space allows and when agreed upon in advance. 

2019 Individual Artist Residency Weeks Available: June 24-30, September 9-15, September 23-29.
