From June through September, SPACE hosts up to 10 residents at a time for up to week long stays. Residencies culminate in informal showings based on the needs of each group or individual. Priority in SPACE's selection process is given to groups or individuals who articulate a clear and distinct vision for how they will use their time at Ryder Farm. Applications for the 2013 season are due at midnight on March 1st.
