Inspiration. Immersion. Seclusion. Natural Beauty. Trillium Arts is an artist residency center where artists of many disciplines can find a creative home away from home, offering secluded space for rejuvenation in a beautiful, remote setting in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Our current facilities are best suited to the disciplines of literary arts, photography, visual arts and arts administration.
Individual artists who do not require a rehearsal studio (such as writers and photographers) are encouraged to apply for a one-week residency.
A residency at Trillium is a place and time where artists can go to work on their art. Residencies are research-and-development labs for the arts, providing artists with time, space, and support for the creation of new work and the exploration of new ideas. Supporting artist in the creation of new work is essential to human progress – not as a luxury, not as a leisure activity, but as a vital and necessary force in society. Artists’ residencies are not about retreat; they are about advancement. Advancing creativity. Advancing human progress. Advancing the way we examine the world.
