Location: Salem, New York
Mission: The Triangle Artists’ Workshop began in 1982 to bring 30 international and U.S.-based artists into the New York countryside to make art intensely together for two weeks straight. Artists work side-by-side, eat meals together, and tirelessly exchange ideas. The workshop is known for its intensity of dialogue, surprising experimental quality of work produced, and amazing community it generates.

Triangle Arts Association is a non-profit organization founded in 1982 to support international and U.S. visual artists. Triangle’s core initiatives—Residencies, Workshops, and Educational Programs—focus on dialogue, experimentation, and the creation of community around art. Triangle runs two main initiatives: a year-round Artist Residency Program in DUMBO, Brooklyn, as well as the biennial Triangle Artists’ Workshop, an intensive two week residency focused on peer learning. Both programs pair international artists with their New York colleagues, providing a dynamic environment for exchange.
Cost: Participants are responsible for their own travel, visa and materials and may apply for limited need-based scholarships in order to assist with these costs. Triangle’s staff will work closely with accepted artists to suggest other outside funding opportunities they may be eligible for.
