Make 2017 a year to remember. 

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. Come make work with us!

Swarm 2017 will run from july 3rd-30th

You can apply to stay for any amount of time--one day up to the entire month! Our home will be Tortuga Inn in Winnemac, Indiana.






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.
