Founded in 1993, Escape To Create celebrates a time where artists can fully engage in artistic creativity. E2C based in Seaside, FL is a unique setting for this artist retreat and has gained national attention for its impact on the local community and creative work of the artists. The heart of Escape to Create is to give artists time to fully engage and immerse in their creative work. Private cottages are donated where artists spend time immersed in their creative work. E2C artists are celebrated in programs, readings, lectures, performances and exhibits in Seaside’s unique venues. E2C serves the Seaside community through Educational outreach, Arts and Cultural Programs, Visiting Artists and Scholars and Multidisciplinary Artist Residencies.
