The climate crisis is an urgent global concern. Self as Universe: Mending Our Collective Ecosystem Residencies at A Studio in the Woods invite artists to explore the connections within our collective ecosystems and use the power of imagination to heal the wounds in the relationship between ourselves and our communities. Southeast Louisiana’s land and inhabitants are continually scarred by the effects of environmental degradation. These injuries – the historical to the present – affect our bodies, families, communities, and cultures, as well as the land and its other creatures.  We encourage artists to guide our collective response as the caretakers and caregivers to our universe while bringing wisdom, integrity, optimism, and even humor to intentional and timely projects seeking transformation for our species and planet.

Art, as a practice of restoration, is both the call and the response. 

It is mirror making and the mirror itself; reflecting the inner experience of an outward expanded consciousness of Climate and Environment.

Here is where the door is open to explore the wonder of Self and Ecosystem… of Self AS ecosystem…Forging paths through changing landscapes and changing times. 

A call for us all to recognize ourselves in Earth’s eyes, and envision a planet of partnership. One that is steeped in principles and practices that center cultural and community values; honoring one another and the land in which we live.

 – Sunni Patterson*

We are open to artists of all disciplines who have demonstrated an established dialogue with environmental and cultural issues. We ask artists to describe in detail how our unique region will affect their work, propose a public component to their residency, and suggest ways how they will engage with the local community.
