Racial and Economic Justice

Funds will be distributed equally among all interested artists. Please only check yes if fees present a hardship as the fund amount is the same regardless of applicants - so the more applicants the less each one can receive.

ARTS WEEK

Sunday-Thursday artists create, interact and enjoy an arts residency at the beach.

On Friday evening and all day Saturday we open to the public as a grand exhibition to share everyone's art.

Our current Covid-19 policy for Arts Week 2023:

Arts Week participants will not be required to show proof of vaccination or booster updates. Please consider taking an at-home Covid test 2 days before traveling to the Sou’wester. If anyone tests positive please notify us and stay home.

We also ask that all Arts Week participants test themselves first thing upon arrival before check-in at The Sou’wester. Please bring your own Covid test-kits; we will have a few test-kits available to those in need.
Wearing a face covering will be left to each person’s personal situation and preference. This will apply to Arts Week participants, the public and Sou’wester Staff.
We will update or change these guidelines as needed and communicate any changes.

During The Week

We'd love to provide opportunities for some safe connections during the week. If you're moved or inspired to facilitate something of this nature, let us know. It can be a crit, a collaboration, a guided activity or anything else. You don't have to decide now. There will be more opportunities to sign up. We're setting the tone and planting a seed.
We are wanting to incorporate our youth program more intentionally this year. We are only using this information to gauge interest, you are not committing to anything at this stage.

ARTS WEEK Weekend

We will open to the public Friday evening and all day Saturday with scheduled performances, studio tours and exhibits.
For a description of some of these spaces on our website go to www.souwesterlodge.com/experience/on-the-grounds/ and souwesterlodge.com/art/arts&ecology center.
