Health and safety

There is a $25 fee to apply. For those with special financial needs, fee waivers are available. To apply to have your fee waived, please email us with a few lines about your circumstances. The deadline for inquiries regarding waivers is end of day, October 27. If you are chosen to participate, your residency will be completely free, however at present we are unable to offer travel reimbursement, nor offer any stipend.

Before you apply
All candidates should read about our program, about our facilities, and thoroughly review our FAQs before beginning their application.

Selection process
Applications are juried by a panel of art professionals. Successful applicants will be notified in December 2022. Best efforts are made to offer time slots to successful applicants based on their preferences, but dates offered for residencies are nonnegotiable.

Thanks for taking the time to apply. We're looking forward to learning more about your work.
