Creekside Arts residencies provide an inspiring natural setting among the coastal redwoods of Northern California for individual as well as collaborative artistic work and expression. We welcome artists from a broad range of creative disciplines. Creekside Arts provides a unique opportunity to reflect, create and explore away from the hectic demands and constraints of daily life.
Our location in the heart of the redwoods and home of the Wiyot people provides a natural setting which guides our commitment to a healthy and sustainable environment. Our program facilitates an exchange of creative thought and expression between participants, neighborhood and the larger Northern California community with a focus on new work with a social and political consciousness.
Our three-week programs provide each artist with fully equipped private living quarters and individual separate work/studio spaces. In addition to providing a space for solitary work, our program supports and encourages a collaborative atmosphere. Evening gatherings provide an opportunity to get to know the other resident artists as well as the permanent members of the Creekside Arts community. Films, discussion and exchanges with local Northern California artists are a part of these gatherings. Our residencies conclude with a creative interaction with the larger Humboldt County community.
We are dedicated to making Creekside Arts available to those who may require assistance and/or special accommodations.
