where does your inspiration live?

February 22nd - March 4th, 2018

Savannah, Georgia

We invited a writer from Oakland, a musician from Burlington, and a muralist from San Diego to collide in our city for eleven days of ruckus & revelry. Our artists-in-residence will live and create from three of Savannah’s most eclectic homeshares.


With the help of our cultural partners, Hestia is Hosting: concerts, workshops, readings, and a stellar final fete in Starland.

It's Our Debut!

In honor of Hestia’s first residency, we invite you to a stellar evening fête in Starland Village.

Join us in celebrating our nomadic artists & honoring Savannah: a city that makes art possible.

Our evening will feature:


  • Site-specific installations by Savannah-based artist Samantha Delaney

  • Three-minute “quick take” talks from artists-in-residence: writer Meg Elison, musician Alexandria Hall, and muralist Celeste Byers

  • Interactive engagements and live performance

  • Thought-provoking Oeuvres & Hor D’oeuvres
