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 and supportive environment. Silver Sun encourages collaboration among peers, and assists 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 are proud to support family residencies as well. Silver Sun collaborates with national and international partner organizations to develop annual residency programs. Residencies are free to all participants working in all disciplines, 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, common living space and a fully equipped kitchen, along with a large meeting room and an all-purpose communal workspace with wifi and media editing facilities.
With gratitude and humility, we acknowledge that we are gathering and collaborating on the ancestral homelands of the Lenape and Munsee peoples, who are among the indigenous nations populating this land.
