Activation Residency is a Black trans led artist residency aiming to generate safer and more collaborative space, adapt to its residents’ needs, and create portals to futures needed now. Located in New York state southern Catskill mountains of Woodridge, the residency seeks to activate the creative practice of each participating resident, redistribute access, resources, and care as well as play with the means of production. In 2018, Activation Residency was born out of the lack of creative opportunities available to Black and brown, trans and queer artists in New York. The first residency program sent 20 working artists to the Outlier Inn in Woodridge, New York. Artists took home a variety of skills and activated perspectives. In 2019, Activation Residency hosted 60 artists at the Outlier Inn for a healing justice program. These artists deepened their transformative justice praxis and developed accountability pods beyond the residency. Independent of Activation Residency LLC, Activation Cooperative Fund was born to support members through COVID-19. In 2020, Activation Residency launched Respite as Resistance and Farming Futurity.
