AgArts is a non-profit organization that seeks to imagine and promote healthy food systems through the arts. AgArts places artists — writers, visual, theatre and performing artists, dancers, and musicians — on farms for residencies of 1 to 4 weeks. We encourage the artists to get to know the farmers, explore and educate themselves about their issues then create a piece that addresses those issues in their work. Artists would be expected to exhibit or perform this work in a location near their home residence. AgArts works with a number of farms that host artists, and our non-profit grants residencies based upon available funding. Please explore our website and the past residencies to familiarize yourself with our mission.
