ARTS ON SITE RESIDENCY & RETREAT

Arts On Site NYC and AOS R&R cultivates creative spaces to support artists and encourage community collaboration. With studio spaces in the East Village and the Artist R&R program in upstate NY, Arts On Site is able to provide artists with an expanse of opportunities for artistic development.

Arts On Site began as a monthly Performance Party in a living room in Harlem. The event was an initiative, from professional artists Chelsea Ainsworth, Kyle Netzeband and Adrian Rosas, to connect artists from multiple art forms.

 

In 2016, Arts On Site NYC was established as a non profit organization to support the development of artists and encourage community collaboration. With the support of a team of volunteer artists, it opened up two studio spaces in the East Village to offer affordable studio rentals and an accessible performance venue.

 

In 2017, Chelsea and Kyle purchased 20 acres of land in upstate New York to begin construction of AOS R&R. In the spring of 2018, they began offering residency opportunities to NYC artists through the Artist R&R program.
