Each year ACRE invites several mid-career and established artists and thinkers to come to the residency and conduct studio visits, give lectures, offer workshops, organize reading groups, lead excursions into neighboring areas, and stage other, more experimental programming.
Each visiting artist comes for 2-7 days, and there are up to four at a given time. Residents and staff also share skills with each other via informal workshops. Visiting bands & performers come through periodically to play concerts & interact with the residency community. All programming is optional.
