Live in America


Residency Information

Live in America Festival Residents

Artists from the Live in America Festival stay at La Nidada for ten to fourteen days. We do not accept residency applications from out-of-town artists who did not participate in the festival.

While these artists self-select their personal goals for their residency, they also engage with local creatives:

  • Public lectures and artist-led workshops. Free-to-attend workshops and lectures address a wide range of artist-selected topics: establishing and nurturing careers, building networks, maintaining community connections, finding joy inside the work, and/or arts skill-building.
  • Breaking bread together. Artists participate in two community dinners hosted at La Nidada. These smaller dinner gatherings are spaces for organic conversation, growing relationships, and dreaming of future collaborations.
  • Sharing our stories. Residency artists also participate in Favela’s podcast.


Local Residencies

Local creatives live at La Nidada for three to four days in which the space offers a boost and respite from the artists’ established local practice. These residency stays are first offered to members of the CoOp.

  • These creatives attend events hosted by La Nidada during their residency.
  • They’ll participate in Live in Springdale programming–as audience members, artists, local producers, stage managers, etc.
  • They attend dinners with out-of-town artists.
  • They participate in Favela’s podcast.
