CALL: SPACE on Ryder Farm Residency

Below is a call for an amazing residency just outside the city.  It’s on a gorgeous farm and the food they feed you is amazing and there is a lake and lots of property.  And very robust wifi.  You should apply! There’s even a family residency!  And they champion diversity in robust and important ways.  I hope you’ll considering applying – it’s a fantastic organization.
