2nd Annual ARTS WEEK: To Reconvene

March 7-14, 2021 The Sou’wester will host 30-35 artists and art collectives for a week of residency work, music, performances and installations.

Once again, The Sou’wester will be given over to artists and art collectives for a week of residency work and a weekend of ‘open houses’ and ‘public performances’: re-imagined for our present world.

Decentralized, Staggered & Open Air, etc.

Over the past 6 years we have held an event around this time of year to highlight the creative process and the experiential nature of the Sou’wester Residency Program. Each year this event brings amazing artists to this neck of the woods and shines creative light into the darkest heart of winter. The focus of the 2nd Annual ARTS WEEK is reconvention, reunion, reflection and renewal.
