For the fifth year, Asylum Arts will be bringing together Jewish artists from all over the world for our International Jewish Artist Retreat, a four-day retreat of learning, community building, and professional development.

The Garrison Institute in upstate New York

Asylum Arts describes itself as a global network for Jewish culture.

They are looking for professional artists who are interested in contributing to Jewish culture (and culture in general), and we hope you can help us create a truly diverse community.

The retreat allows artists to explore and deepen their connections to Jewish ideas, culture, and community. 65 multi-disciplinary artists from around the world will come together at the beautiful Garrison Institute in New York in December 2018 to learn from industry professionals, working artists, and from each other.

Master classes and seminars will be led by professionals from leading arts organizations, empowering emerging artists with the professional skills necessary for a more successful long-term career in the arts. These sessions have previously included marketing techniques to strengthen your artist profile and online presence, negotiating relationships, fundraising practices and more. Participating artists will also lead sessions in their areas of expertise. Previous artist workshops have included movement through imagination, stop motion animation, improvisation without instruments, storytelling in virtual reality, Jewish typography, meditation, and much more. We believe that by bringing together a global community of emerging Jewish artists, new art and relationships will be fostered that cross national boundaries and artistic mediums.

Retreat Dates: Sunday, December 9 – Wednesday, December 12, 2018.

Applications open Tuesday, May 22, 2018. To apply or to read more about the retreat, visit
