Winter creative Residencies and Retreats in Chicago

Writers or artists of all disciplines are welcome to participate and share the space with other creative individuals. Each day will be an opportunity to work, research, explore and communicate your experiences, joys and challenges of being a creative individual. During this week you will meet with other participants and some Chicago artists; our city has one of the most vibrant cultural art communities in the country.

Writer’s Residencies

The Writer’s Residency will provide you with a concentrated block of time for writing without major distractions for 6 days; we encourage writers to visit the city for research if they need to do so or for enjoyment in the evening, but to use this time to focus on work within this peaceful and quiet environment to be productive. A salon is held on Saturday evening where residency participants and local writers will meet and talk.

Schedule for 2013 Writer’s Residencies:
January 7-13, 2013
February 4-10, 2013

Artist’s Retreats

The Artist’s Retreats are an invitation for artists of all disciplines to re-discover and be inspired by Chicago. Unfortunately, we cannot provide studio space, but you will be able to visit many of Chicago’s museums, galleries and urban treasures; research; be inspired by the cityscape; share space and ideas with other artists in residence and artists from Chicago to forge lasting relationships. Salons are held on Friday and Saturday evenings where residency participants and local artists will meet and talk. A tour to a local artist’s studio or workspace can be arranged based on the interests of the participants.

Schedule for 2013 Artist’s Retreats:
S2AR13 January 21 – January 27, 2013
