Ryder Farm Residencies

Application deadline is Nov. 6

Space on Ryder Farm, a residency program for artists on an organic farm in Brewster, is accepting applications for its 2020 program. The deadline is Nov. 6.

From June to October each year, Ryder Farm provides housing, meals, space and access to its 127 acres of farmland to writers and artists.

Each year it provides eight playwrights, composers, lyricists and/or librettists with five non-consecutive weeks to develop works for the stage; a family residency for working parents and their children; creative residencies of one or two weeks; and institutional residencies for arts and nonprofit organizations.

See spaceonryderfarm.org. At least 50 percent of the grants are awarded to people of color and “underrepresented voices.”
