Guest Artist Residencies
As Founding Artistic Director and Producer DANCE NOW NYC, a non-profit arts presenting organization dedicated to supporting the artistic dreams and endeavors of New York City dance makers since 1986, Robin Staff understands the enormous need for urban artists to have space that will encourage the development of their craft. Kirkland Farm, with it’s two barn studio’s, three-story guest house and sprawling landscape, has made it possible to offer artists and friends in the field of dance an inspiring haven in which they can come together to process, create and just escape the pressures of city life for a few days and continue the Kirkland legacy of the farm as being home to the artistic community. Kirkland Farm is located just 76 miles from NYC and 56 miles from Philadelphia.
Silo at Kirkland Farm provides guest artists and friends free use of the Silo studios, housing in the guest house for a minimal contribution to help cover basic upkeep and rare and focused creative time at historic Kirkland Farm in the heart of Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley.
