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. A typical day might begin with several hours of individual/team work, lunch, an optional afternoon excursion or on-site activity, dinner, and an evening gathering of resident artists.
TLC offers residency and retreat opportunitites for artistic groups or organizations looking for space and time to connect, create, and reflect together in community.
2012 featured residencies for playwright fellows from the Playwrights' Center, the Sandbox Theatre's company retreat, and The Stuart Pimsler Dance & Theater Company, who returned to Ely's Vermilion Community College to launch their 2012 tour.
