Residency Program in Wisconsin

ACRE is committed to being open and accessible to all artists. We are eager to work with you directly to ensure we will be able to meet your needs. 

The residency is located on a 1000-acre farm in Wisconsin’s Driftless Region. Living, dining, and studio spaces are communal. The residency is comprised of several main buildings and several outbuildings located around the residency property. Residents regularly travel between buildings for meals, to use facilities, or participate in workshops, performances, or other activities during the session. While the main buildings are wheelchair accessible, the property's terrain and some of the farm structures and outbuildings may not be accessible to everyone. Specifically, a communal studio area and the looms for our fibers department are located on the second floor of a building with no elevator. Each facility is managed by a volunteer artist tech who is able, to the best of their ability, to help with studio activities and projects that may require physical assistance. There is a volunteer staff person “on-call” at all times to provide assistance to residents including shuttles around campus, assistance with basic navigation, and emergency assistance if necessary. 

All of our sleeping accommodations and the majority of our facilities are ground-floor accessible. The majority of the common areas including our dining hall/kitchen, main lodge, and library are wheelchair accessible. All common restrooms and a selection of private restrooms within sleeping accommodations are wheelchair accessible. All common restrooms are gender-inclusive. We are prepared to produce or facilitate accommodations such as large print materials, wheelchair ramps, special travel help, special or private sleeping accommodations, and any other actions that our volunteer staff are reasonably able to fulfill.

Your contact for questions or to request accessibility accommodations is ACRE’s Acting Director Kate Bowen (kate@acreresidency.org). Please let us know what accommodations you would like to request so that we may facilitate alternatives.
