The INSIDE1260 affinity group offers you distinctive access to the historic Ragdale community of artists and writers.

At Ragdale, visual artists, writers, composers, filmmakers, choreographers, and interdisciplinary artists from around the globe find what they need to create important new work: time and space.


Throughout the year, Ragdale offers readings, artist lectures, workshops, and special events designed to connect artists and regional audiences.


Designed as the summer home of Arts and Crafts architect Howard Van Doren Shaw, Ragdale is one of the most complete examples of a turn-of-the-century retreat. The Ragdale House, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, benefitted from a comprehensive $3 million restoration in 2011-2012.
