The Yefe Nof Residency (YNR) is a place where writers, researchers, and designers bring their projects for the final stage of execution, one resident at a time for two to six weeks. Residents use that time to construct narratives that captivate, to express what they believe to be true and complex, to remind us of the deep beauty and multilayered poetry in the world, to speculate about futures that we can conceive no matter how still unlikely.

Lake Arrowhead is an ideal location – its proximity to Los Angeles offers the accessibility of urban experiences and conveniences, while its position at 5,600 feet above the desert offers the mental and environmental benefits that enhance the process of creation.

You go to Yefe Nof to become reinvigorated by the mountains, experience the lake, and push your work to completion. Just as they are about to be released into the world at large, the final products are also collected in the house, building upon one another in an ever-evolving collection, a network that acts as both a dedication to progress and a dialogue.
