WHY A RESIDENCY?

Think summit meets festival meets ashram, meets training ground- without the price tag. It’s hard to explain. It’s like taking a vacation and meeting your best friends. It’s like going to an Ashram but without the strict rules. From years of doing this, we just like to call it an alternate reality or a waking dream. In human language, we specialize in creating community and curating professional training opportunities with Guest Teaches from all over the world.
