betterArt Residency Applications Now Available

betterArt, a new art residency program at Better Farm starting this summer, is now accepting applications!

betterArt maintains facilities on Better Farm's property (from teepees to treehouses to shared, cabin-style housing) as residences for writers, visual artists of all media, bands, and composers.

betterArt's summer residency program is open from June 1 to Sept. 1, and can accommodate comfortably up to seven people at a time. Residencies are for one week, two weeks, or month-long periods of time. The standards for admission are talent, desire to live  and work specifically at Better Farm, and a willingness to have a go at the Better Theory; a belief that each moment presents us with the opportunity for exponential personal growth.
