Hinge Arts at the Kirkbride is a community development and artist residency program in Fergus Falls, Minnesota. Launched in Spring 2015, Hinge Arts creates opportunities where artists and community members gather to explore themes of transition, connection, and innovation inspired by the history of former Fergus Falls State Hospital. We host one artist at a time, totaling approximately 9 -20 each year. Artists can attend for 2 to 12 weeks, and live in a newly renovated apartment in the former nurse’s dormitory. Studio spaces are made available throughout the community of Fergus Falls.
We are currently accepting applications for residencies taking place between July and December 2019. Applications are due March 1, 2019, at 11:59pm.
Artists of all disciplines and career levels are welcome to apply. We have three residency tracks: Career Development, for artists who want to work on their own self-driven projects during their time in Fergus Falls; Homecoming, for artists who spent all or a portion of their youth in the 9-county region of West Central Minnesota but now live elsewhere, who want to engage and collaborate with their home community; and Alumni, for artists who have previously participated in Hinge Arts that would like to build on connections or ideas from a previous residency.
