River Residencies honored the Mississippi River, a magnificent body of water that has inspired authors, musicians, artists, historians, and playwrights for over a century yet today is challenged by pollution and containment. River Residencies provided sustained quality work time in contact with the Mississippi; time in which one could experience and study the river and use it as a catalyst to create art that contributes to our awareness of the river, its needs and its gifts to all life.

River Residencies were funded by the Louisiana Division of the Arts and the Tulane/Xavier Center for Bioenvironmental Research with a grant from the Aron Foundation Charitable Trust.
