YNR offers thinkers, artists, and design-makers opportunities for establishing new connections. It is targeted at authors unknown to the general public considering problems which anyone on earth can apply themselves to and solve. If it’s often people with the wrong pedigrees who find the right solutions, YNR is the place to discover new connective tissue between disciplines by letting blossom your passion, force of intellect, and formal originality as you finalize your ideas. We are not elitists, we are hustlers who live below our means in order to dream beyond expectations. As it takes inspiration, reflection, and understanding to imagine solutions, it also takes resources to have those solutions implemented in the world at large. In addition to uninterrupted time to cultivate our current projects and stimulate creative approaches, the residencies offer opportunities to bring finished products to market.
