The Residency Program

Providing a blank canvas for people to do what they do best.

 
A beautiful, collaborative space.

See for yourself. Get in touch to meet us in the building for a tour.

As a Resident in the Small Arms Inspection Building, you can share our newly renovated heritage building with others interested in creation, collaboration and community.

Contribute with your knowledge, skills, and experience.

With a minimal monthly fee, our Residents contribute their skills to give back to the community in exchange for use of the space.

Plan a workshop, host an exhibition, propose a program, and work with other Residents in exchange for the opportunity to work in this stunning open space.

Here, 2+2 can equal 5.

We believe that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.

If you are an artist, environmentalist, historian, activist, or innovator, you can create with us while contributing to growth of the community!

 

Become a resident.

 

Meet our past residents.
