Escape to Create Brings Master Artists to South Walton

What do the Pulitzer Prize, Jazz piano, Canadian children’s literature and Nashville songwriting all have in common with 30A?

Following a tradition dating back to 1993, artists arrive in Seaside this winter to participate in Escape To Create, the multi-disciplinary non-profit artist residency that has gained national attention for its longstanding relationship with the town of Seaside and for its special commitment to educational outreach in Walton County.

The artists who were selected live and work in Seaside cottages, which have been donated for their month-long creative projects and in support of their contributions to the larger community through educational outreach and performance.

During their stays, artists will contribute workshops, master classes and classroom visits in schools throughout the region.

A series of programs and performances will showcase their creative excellence at Seaside’s REP Theatre in a unique array of awarded dramatic plays, music, art, literary and environmental readings to the area. Click here to see a listing of upcoming performances.

An initial group arrived in the area for the month of January. A second group arrived February 1 and will stay through the end of the month.

Additional information on Escape To Create and the visiting 2016 artists is available on their website.
