18th Street Arts Center Residency: (ongoing)


18th Street Arts Center’s visiting artist residency program has hosted more than 500 artists from dozens of countries around the world since it first began in 1992. There are four live/work artist studios at the center where artists are in residence from 1 to 3 months at a time (sometimes longer). This program hosts artists of all disciplines as well as art curators, writers, and musicians. It includes invited artists as well as artists selected through an open application process. The program is open to artists of all generations, nationalities, and disciplines.  

Funding for each residency is on a case-by-case basis. Many international artists have access to funding through their cultural ministries or other programs, and we work with artists to secure funding or encourage them to apply to cover the costs of the residency through various funding programs. In some cases, we have agreements with cultural ministries and other funders to underwrite artist residencies. Artists may also choose to cover the basic costs of the residency themselves. For a list of international residency funders, please visit the funding resources page at Res Artis or the Alliance for Artist Communities for tips on funding and applying. 

Although we primarily support visual artists, 18th Street Arts Center will consider applications from performing artists, writers, and filmmakers as well.


Funding is case by case
