Which Program do you want to apply to?

The Swarm Resident application is where most residents will apply, and is the main general application for artists who wish to attend Swarm. 
The Swarm Apiary Artist Program (SAAP) is a special program designed to bring exciting and emerging Chicago-based artists or artist groups into the Swarm community. Our SAAP artists will work on specific projects during their Swarm residency and teach workshops available to all Swarm attendees.
The Healing Arts Circle is a dedicated program for healers to offer sliding-scale services to our residents, amplifying the healing and growth that takes place at Swarm every year. Yoga, music or dance therapies, meditation, tarot, intuitive or psychic healing... anyone who considers themselves a healer can apply!
