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, but please note that residencies are on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.
