We are taking some time to dream big. 

Swarm Artist Residency envisions a space for underrepresented artists seeking open land, open hearts, and community. Each year we organize a sliding scale, midwestern retreat that welcomes all bodies, disciplines, and minds. 

In order to further our mission, we're using summer 2018 to dream about Swarm's future. 

Swarm will return in 2019! 

Stay tuned for updates about 2018 events, fundraisers, and more. Send us all your good vibes, magic thoughts, and celestial visions as we dream and plan for the future of Swarm! 






Swarm Apiary Artist Program

Each year, Swarm welcomes three artists or artist groups to stay at the residency for one week free of cost. In exchange for meals and lodging, artists share their craft with the larger Swarm community through master classes and artistic production.

Just as healthy gardens thrive from the planting of a variety of seeds, Swarm’s success depends on the richness, depth, and diversity of its community.  Artists of color, queer, gender-expansive and other artists working in non-dominant spaces are strongly encouraged to apply. Artists of all artistic disciplines are welcome.
