Red Cinder Creativity Center


Red Cinder Creativity Center
Red Cinder Creativity Center is place where artists can be granted the space, time, and encouragement to pursue their work free of outside distractions. That´s the basic principle of all artists´ colonies; however, most require a residency of at least 4 weeks. This excludes many serious artists who, for whatever reason, also have to earn a living doing other work. So the typical stay for an artist at Red Cinder is 10 days to 2 weeks ­ enough time to complete a short-term project or get a longer one well started.
