Artist Retreat

Continuum’s Artist Retreat program provides visiting artists with time and space for practice, rehearsal, recording, performance, lodging, and for shared meals and many casual yet significant interactions and collaborations with New York artists and other visitors.

People come from all over the world to New York to access its uniquely vibrant cultural community but the expense can be prohibitive, especially for artists working in under-commercialized genres and anyone coming from poorer economies. The Continuum Artist Retreat Program makes it possible for artists to have a rich experience in New York that would be otherwise impossible.
