Residence

The Silver Sun Residence began welcoming artists in July 2019. Our mission is to offer creative professionals and change makers an opportunity to develop new work in a tranquil environment. Silver Sun supports collaboration among peers, and assists and encourages our residents to create opportunities for interaction with the local community by participating in work-in-progress showcases and discussions throughout the year.

Residencies are typically one month in duration, and are offered by invitation only. Up to three individual artists or collaborative team members may occupy the facility together, and we support family residencies as well. Participants are invited to participate by the Silver Sun Foundation or in collaboration with our national and international partner organizations, and are welcome to work in all disciplines. All residencies are free to participants, and we are committed to the practice of inclusion and equity, and to providing opportunity for persons of color and other underrepresented voices.

The Residence is located 2 1/2 hours north of New York City in the heart of the Catskill Mountains, and within walking distance to the iconic village of Woodstock, N.Y. Residents are hosted in a beautiful 19th century converted dairy farm on 12 acres, and provided with full access to a private house with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, a living space and fully equipped kitchen, along with a large meeting room and an all-purpose communal workspace with wifi and media editing facilities.
