IMMERSE YOURSELF in your creative process at Earthdance! The Artistic Residential Retreat (ARR) is an incredible opportunity to  dive into your creative research. This extended personal retreat program offers the beauty and solace of Western Massachusetts and the community-living atmosphere of Earthdance with focused time and space for your personal process.

This is a unique and exciting opportunity to soak in the energy, nature, history and nourishment of Earthdance as it continues to be an ideal setting to cultivate and focus on who you are as an artist and build your practice/creation/work. Whether you are a mover, writer, composer, videographer/filmmaker, visionary or beyond any label, ARR is an opportunity and space to nurture your creative self while living with a small group of other retreatants practicing clear Covid safe protocol together. In these unique times, this residency offers a unique chance to soak in nature, spark imagination and creation, and be nourished by a contained focused environment.
