“Artists are people driven by the tension between the desire to communicate and the desire to hide.”
― Donald Woods Winnicott
Here at Mill Creek, we want to support those who think creatively, those who care generously and those who
give beyond themselves. We can give back to the givers by providing a quiet place to think, retreat and create.
Our Artist in Residence program is a chance for one or more artists, writers or photographers to spend 4 days at camp free of charge to engage solely in their craft. We will begin taking applications NOW closing in mid-November and artist stays will occur in January-March on Sunday through Thursday mid-week stays.
We want our artists, writers, photographers and creatives to leave a bit of themselves behind at Mill Creek. Perhaps you will paint a hidden painting on a tree in the woods (we have a perfect one!) or perhaps you will hide a geocache with a poem inside. Perhaps you will sketch the birds seen during your stay, paint the mountain laurel or make a comic featuring our woodland creatures. Whatever your idea is, be creative! We are excited to see your craft!
If you have questions, just fill out the contact form below and we will get back to you!
A Human Library is a library of human beings, individuals, that each represent a group in the community that may be somehow exposed to stigma, prejudice, and/or discrimination. It aims to establish a safe conversational space where difficult questions are expected, appreciated, and answered.
"I believe in the power of books to connect individuals, provide comfort and empathy, and spark curiosity about the world. I am an avid children's literature advocate and spend much of my time within the walls of my classroom and beyond spreading my love for literacy with others."
We would love to see samples of your previous work along with your application.
