Description of residency program

Elsewhere Studios Residency Program in Paonia, CO, provides space and time for artists to create in a unique and supportive environment. We welcome visual artists, writers, composer/musicians, performance artists at any stage of their careers as well as scientists, activists, teachers, students, or any kind of creative thinker interested in exploring and expanding their work.

Paonia is a small town nestled in a beautiful landscape of mountains and mesas covered with orchards, small ranches, and farms. It is about 1.5 hours from Grand Junction on the western slope of the Rocky Mountains. Paonia is a community of unique and creative individuals with a strong interest in sustainability and alternative living. It was recently designated as a Certified Creative District by the state of Colorado.
