Support TLC  

We believe in the power of art, community and nature as catalysts for personal and cultural change. 

We are committed to making our residencies affordable to a diverse community of artists, scholars and leaders wishing to expand and deepen their creative work. Your generous gift helps us subsidize a large portion of their residency, and give necessary time and space to these emerging and accomplished artists who are changing our world through their new plays, poems, prose, dance, music, and visual art. 

Now as we enter into our second decade, your contribution will help us build a stable foundation to provide consistent programming for our artists in residence, grow our reach and diversify our artistic community, and ensure that our meaningful programming opportunities can continue as we write our next chapter.



TLC is committed to keeping our rates affordable for artists by subsidizing their residencies. Your gift of $1400 underwrites the costs of staff, maintenance, and administration for an artist's week-long residency at TLC so they can focus on their meaningful work.

Now in our second decade, your support will help us grow our reach and diversify our artistic community.

Thank you for your support of TLC and for our artists into our next chapter!



Your contribution to the Gaia Fenna Memorial Fellowship helps to support residencies for artists from Minnesota who are inspired by the arts and the outdoors.

Your gift honors the spirit, passions, values and legacy of Minnesota artist and nature lover Gaia Fenna, a dear friend and long-time supporter of TLC, who passed away in 2014. 

Thank you for continuing Gaia's legacy and love of TLC!

The total cost of running a week-long residency at TLC is $9,800. Your gift of any size subsidizes staffing, maintenance, and administration costs to continue to keep rates affordable for artists and allow them to focus on their voice and craft.

Your donation of any amount makes the difference in helping us support these artists, their work, and their impact on our world today.

Thank you for helping to support TLC and our artists!
