Applications Open for Summer 2024

Update / 11.1.23

Applications for the ACRE Summer 2024 Residency Program open on October 2nd. For over a decade, we've nurtured a supportive community for emerging artists at the beautiful Mother Earth Green Center and Steuben Lodge in Wisconsin. Our 14-day residencies host 20-25 artists for each of our three summer sessions. We serve emerging visual artists, sound artists, musicians, performers, writers, community makers, curators, and administrators, fostering their growth within a cooperative setting.

Facilities include communal workspaces, a screen-printing studio, woodshop, ceramics studio, fibers studio, small foundry, and art & tech facility. Shared accommodations offer bathrooms, kitchenettes, and decks. Join us for another incredible summer and expand your practice in a one-of-a-kind setting.

📆 Application Timeline Adjustment ⏰


In our ongoing effort to create a more equitable and accessible application process, we are pleased to announce a significant change in our timeline for the Summer 2024 residency:

➡️ Fall 2023 Application Cycle: The application period for the Summer 2024 Residency Program will open in Fall 2023. This adjustment allows admitted residents ample time for thoughtful decision-making, flexible tuition payment arrangements, and the ability to plan, orient and build community in advance of the residency.

➡️ Admission Notifications in February 2024: Artists selected for our Summer Residency Program, scheduled for June to August 2024, will be announced in February 2024.

This marks one of several strategic changes we're implementing as we grow our roots and expand our capacities to shape the future of our collective work within the organization. Stay tuned for more information about how we are furthering our mission of nurturing emerging talent and fostering creative connections.
