Launched in 2016, our Tidelines Journey Residency is a nomadic group residency program which utilizes the Alaska Marine Highway to travel through a number of small communities in the course of a month. This is a collaborative residency program designed to give the group of travelers the chance to investigate a theme of particular relevance in the Southeast Alaskan setting while also fostering dialogue and exchange within the communities that we visit.
