Please note: We are a small independent arts program and do not receive external funding support. Residency fees are priced to maintain sustainability of the program. For interested applicants and accepted residents in need of funding assistance, we suggest looking into outside resources such as Artadia, Foundation for Arts Initiatives, Prince Claus Fund for Culture and Development, Jerome Foundation, Harpo Foundation, Pollock-Krasner Grants, Aaron Siskind Foundation, New York Foundation for the Arts, Sustainable Arts Foundation, The Awesome Foundation, and Kickstarter. We are happy to provide letters of invitation or other documents of support.



Details:

Our residencies are solo residencies meaning we host one resident or two collaborators (w/shared amenities) at a time.

We assist with project development and research as much as possible to create a platform of support, conversation, reflection, and accessibility. That said, all needs and desires are not always possible to access and the primary work does lie in the hands of resident themselves.

Applicants are encouraged to consider (both on application and during their stay) how their work or research will interact with Guatemala as a place, community and culture, and to reflect on their role and responsibility as a an artist or researcher learning and creating in a new location. Due to the limited time-frame, we are less focused on residents’ capability to learn / produce / execute, and more so on the thoughtful process and purpose from which we are doing so.
