Earthdance, Plainfield, MA


E|MERGE encourages cross-disciplinary collaboration toward forging new creative relationships, that bridge known and unknown territories.

This unique residency brings together 25-35 artists of various disciplines to create collaboratively. It is a residency ideal for those interested in collaborating and cross-pollinating ideas with artists from other disciplines and backgrounds.

This is the 3rd year of the residency. Every year creative relationships form that extend far beyond the limited time-frame of the residency. E|MERGE seems to be a residency that grows into an organically developing network of highly skilled artists.

You can apply to lead a proposed project, to be placed into a collaborative pool of artists creating with no pre-determined project, or to participate as a performer, designer, musician, video artist, puppeteer, or ? in someone else’s project proposal.

For the application go to:

Past residency projects have included: a Museum of Narrow Spaces taking place in multiple locations throughout the Earthdance grounds & physical landscape; a performance installation performed for one audience member at a time, centered around a remote cabin; a photo shoot and participatory installation in our lodge kitchen; a video installation in a library loft; an experiment in creating an improvisational group animal without the use of language; a multi-media piece on self & isolation; and so much more.
