Kindred Creative Residence : Seeding Kindred

Associated Residency Program

We are a multi-racial, multi-ethnic, multi-generational collective of creatives, educators, and farmers with a shared vision of creating a community based on democratic principles and a shared vision. We believe in sustainable living through regenerative agriculture, community outreach, education, and inclusivity. 

We are stewarding 64 acres of wooded property with trails, forest, fields, and streams in the lush green mountains of unceded Abenaki land in Fletcher, Vermont. Join us to begin conversations around social, racial, and environmental justice and the role we, as artist/educators/activists, play in uplifting the next generation of artist/activist leaders! We have beautiful outdoor spaces for plein air painting, abundant woods for crafting and sculpting with natural materials, and woods to explore for inspiration and contemplation. Bring your sustainable art supplies, small tools, sketchbooks, and wisdom, to make art, grow food, and be the change we want to see in the world!

Guests are invited to stay on the property, participate in building projects on the land, and contribute to conversations about how we can build a sustainable, equitable place for BIPOC, ALAANA, and LGBTQIA+ creative communities + culture workers.

We offer short term (1-week to 3 weeks) and long term (1 month to 2 month) residencies. You may stay in the Dream House, Yurt, three season tents, tent platform, or camp in the field.  Our residency is meant to inspire you, offer a place to rest, and support creativity surrounded by nature.  Artists, writers, think-tanks, educators and learners, farmers and community activists, and culture workers are invited to apply.

Please contact us to find out how our creative residence may contribute to your goals.
