The Scriven Arts Colony hosts only four or five events a year, always in the warm months because our barn has no heat. Many people offer to do presentations, so we end up being selective. We often make the painful decision to pass on hosting great artists, writers, and the like.

We’d love to hear from anyone interested in presenting at the Scriven Arts Colony. We are particularly intent on promoting cultural diversity and the voices of early career artists and change makers with a connection to Gilmanton.
