This small kitchen will pose significant questions on issues of cultural production and organizational practice as they relate to residency programs. How can modes of collaboration in residency programs adapt to the changing needs of artists, curators and institutions? How do broader political and economic realities impact artist residency programs today? How can organizations balance growth with sustainability?

– Popularity of travel grants, where time can be self-determined
