Asheville Creative Arts has a physical home at The Farm in Black Mountain, where we have space for humans to create, retreat and heal, as well as space for animals to roam. 

Recent resident artists include Jeghetto and Nephrii Amenii, who participated in an advance puppet building workshop for HUMAN; and our current artist in residence is woodworker Alex Smith who is creating an immersive art installation called The Barn.

Programs at The Farm:

  • a retreat center for community based organizations who can engage the services of partner Partake Arts for thoughtful, human centered strategic planning, team building and coaching;
  • an international artist residency specifically focused on creating theatre, dance, performance for young audiences, puppetry, and more (coming soon);
  • classes and workshops for artists and young people interested in making art in sustainable ways among community members (coming soon).
