The Emerging Artist Residency represents 25 years that Franconia Sculpture Park has upheld a long-running work exchange model that equally cares for artists and organizational sustainability. While offering professional support and growth to emerging artists, the 50-acre sculpture park receives site and operational support with the help of their Emerging Artist Residents. This is a process-based residency. The rural setting and the chance to work alongside peers, mid-career artists, and visiting art curators create a dynamic setting for critical, technical, and professional growth within a collaborative exchange model.

For artist parents, this is a self-directed residency. The Artist Family benefits both from the individual creative process and also through togetherness. A culminating Parents & Community sharing of Summer Camp Works provides a joined capstone experience for the Artist Family.

The Cowles Center for Dance and the Performing Arts offers free dance residency programs to K-12 schools throughout MN. A large part of their program is to reach remote area schools through virtual distance learning. They have been offering this free program since 2004, reaching over 2,000 students each year. They want to reach more greater MN schools as they know access to quality dance education can be sparse.
Dance without Barriers is The Cowles Center’s K-12 dance residency program open to K-12 schools throughout Minnesota. Teaching Artists visit classrooms –- either in-person or virtually (they’ve had plenty of practice and success with virtual residencies in the last year!) –- to lead 3 to 5 day residences guided by your curriculum.
Thanks to generous sponsorship, these residencies are free to select Minnesota schools – apply today!
In the meantime, explore their Brain Breaks videos which showcase the diversity and personality of their fabulous Teaching Artists!
