We are excited to announce our inaugural Residency program! The following applies to an upcoming retreat from August 1st-21st (dates negotiable if you need!).
A Residency at Focus Retreat Center is a period of time to work on a creative coding project and prioritize creative project work. The creative work that excites and ignites you may often be relegated to the periphery of your schedule. Jammed in the nooks and crannies here and there on nights and weekends. A Residency is an opportunity to center that work, giving it full priority so it can flourish.
If you do creative work with a computer, you're a candidate! Some ideas of the kinds of folks we're looking for:
People working on visual art powered by programming as well as other tech-powered creative projects.
People making music through code.
People designing and developing independent games.
Open Source Maintainers
Anyone doing development or maintenance on open source software projects.
Schedules are flexible to fit your availability. We recommend a minimum of two weeks.
Residency is an award of recognition that covers your lodging and food at Focus Retreat Center so there is no cost to you.
Yes, absolutely please do!
