Healing Arts Residency


It all started when…

We recognized the need for healing artists to have spaces to practice their art. All too often, those spaces are not accessible due to high rents or long term leases.We have created this residency in response to furthering our mission to diversify how our community experiences, values, and understands the arts.


What We Offer:

Our residency program offers healing artists flexibility with short term commitments, a professional platform shared by other creative artists, and a beautiful space in Germantown, NY with connection to the Instar Lodges community network.

As part of your residency, we provide a quiet studio space, a massage bed and stool, and storage for a small quantity of artists materials. The healing arts studio is a peaceful room off of our kitchen. (There are times when the kitchen is being used, which will be noted on the calendar).

As a healing artist in residence, you have access to the Womens Workplace at Instar Lodge, including all social and networking events. You are welcome to the workshop room and library. Instar will direct our audience to you by including you on our website with a link to your booking platform or contact information and promoting your work in our newsletters during your residency.
