Arts Letters & Numbers was founded in 2011, and at that point the summer workshop was the driving force of the organization. When the facilities grew, so did the program. In 2015 the first Artist in Residence arrived, and since then we have continuously been cultivating this program to encourage individual and collaborative creation: to think, make and act alongside others within a community. The program has brought together artists from a wide range of disciplines, to ask and engage their questions, create and share their work. When people are free to act, interact with and support one another, new works and ideas emerge.
e are very honored to have been listed as one of 11 of the World's Most Inspiring Design Residencies by Artsy last year. Our residency program started in 2015, at that time run by architects who had never participated in a residency before. This beautifully began our journey of organically building a program with each and every artist who came. It’s amazing to look back at the last few years and the artists who have come from all over the world to create, to share and to engage in the community.
