AgArts is a nonprofit 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 nonprofit grants residencies based upon available funding. Please explore our website and the past residencies to familiarize yourself with our mission, but note that residency applications are not being accepted until September 2022.
