The Art of Stillness

The Art of Stillness

Explore what internationally renowned writer, thinker and residency faculty Pico Iyer calls The Art of Stillness. This interdisciplinary residency provides writers, visual artists, dancers and musicians the opportunity to work with expert faculty whose work explores stillness and its relationship to the creative process, while also providing the time to slow down, reclaim mind space and hone their practice.

We live in a world of constant motion: individual and collective relocation and dislocation, changing political movements, and the acceleration of information and data in a digital age. In this residency, participants will engage across disciplines on what this increased speed of life means for practicing artists and what value we can gain in slowing down.

Step away from the pace of everyday life and discover what insights may be gained from being grounded firmly in physical location and rooted in the present moment.
