These spaces are available to creatives of all stripes – artisans, entrepreneurs, start-ups and more. They are ideal for artists looking to make use of our unique industrial space, entrepreneurs looking to scale up, and new projects that make unique use of our unique environment for collaboration and cross pollination. All grantees MUST exhibit during the festival, held September 22-24. After the Fest, projects are reviewed and extended the opportunity to extend their stay through Spring 2018.
Special consideration given to projects with a focus on interdisciplinary works, community outreach and civic progress. Applicants should be prepared to show how their project is at a "threshold" which will benefit from incubation.
We also expect that applicants will participate fully in our community, and take advantage of additional lectures, workshops, mentorship sessions and open studios, as these programs are developed. We also consider your feedback a crucial aspect of the experience!
