Deadline: April 15, 2015. Grin City Collective's Artist & Writers Residency Program offers 3-week or 6-week long residencies for writers, visual and performance artists on a farm in Central Iowa. Residents receive a private studio, bedroom and a collaborative working atmosphere. Artists over the age of 21 at any stage of their career may apply.
Thanks to the Iowa Arts Council's Public Art Network, more and more Iowans are able to stumble upon new works of contemporary visual art in public places, but there are fewer opportunities for the public to stumble upon new works of creative writing without the sometimes-intimidating commitment to opening the cover of a book.
Located on Grin City's 320-acre farm property just north of Grinnell, Iowa. This year's Rurally Good Festival will be building off of 2013's Rurally Good Festival. This year's Rurally Good will be condensed 1-day event that includes a gallery show of artists-in-residence work, open studios tour, readings by authors-in-residence.
From April - October, Grin City's residency program welcomes writers, visual and performance artists for stays of 3-6 weeks. Residents are provided housing and individual workspace on the Grin City farm complex a 1/2 mile north of the town of Grinnell, Iowa. Up to ten people can be a part of Grin City Collective at any point in time.
