BMoCA + Swoon

BMoCA + Swoon International Artists Residency

The BMoCA + Swoon International Artists Residency exists to invite creatives from around the world to explore their practice within the Boulder community. Our goal is to foster the growth of emerging and established artists, musicians, writers, dancers, and other creatives by providing them with the studio space, resources, time, and freedom to take risks and realize expansive works of their imagination. The residency emphasizes the importance of a meaningful and multi-layered exchange of ideas and fosters working relationships with local entities. The result has been an interdisciplinary collaboration between the arts, technology, and sciences in which resident artists work closely with scholars, creatives, and experts at scientific research centers to further their current work or develop new works. Established in 2015, the program has hosted five international artists to date. This year as a response to COVID-19, BMoCA + Swoon has decided to celebrate a regional artist and to foster collaboration between our creative communities in Colorado.
