Tuttle Creative Residencies
Tuttle Creative Residencies encourage faculty to organize artist residencies that engage pedagogy, creation, public presentation, and dialogue among artists, faculty, students, staff, and area communities.
The program encourages residency designs that offer multiple touch-points for the Haverford community to interact with visiting artists. Residencies may take the form of a few days, a concentrated week of activity, or multiple campus and/or virtual artist visits throughout the semester.
Past Tuttle Creative Residents have included Applied Mechanics, Jaamil Olawale Kosoko, Lightning Rod Special, Deborah A. Miranda, Sparrow, Joan Naviyuk Kane, François-Xavier Gbré, Alice Notley, Zoe Strauss, Hank Willis Thomas, Christine Sun Kim, Matmos, and many others.

Skidmore College, NY
The Hurford Center for the Arts and Humanities supports faculty/staff and students to attend the Robert Flaherty Film Seminar, the longest continuously running documentary film event in North America. Named after Robert Flaherty, considered by many to be the father of documentary film, the week-long seminar brings together over 160 filmmakers, artists, curators, scholars, students, and film enthusiasts to celebrate the power of the moving image.
2023 Flaherty Film Seminar Programmers: Jon Davies & Steve Reinke. Learn more about this year's Flaherty Seminar. For more information, contact Kelly Jung.
This opportunity is open to Haverford faculty and staff, as well as current Haverford students and TriCo students who have completed substantial coursework in film at Haverford. While the Flaherty has previously only allowed those who are 21 and older to attend, this year they may open the Seminar to younger folks. Please apply if you’re interested in attending, no matter your age, and we will inform you of the Flaherty’s decision as soon as we know.
