NOISE: This is a community household, and while artists should not expect complete silence, they are expected to maintain a respectful volume and wear headphones when listening to music in common spaces.

Each resident is offered a private bedroom of at least 150 sq feet and a shared bath. There is a shared studio space in the basement, but many artists choose to work in other areas of the house. We have tools for communal use (list available on request).
Housing is free and includes WIFI internet, laundry facilities, and a communal kitchen. Artists are responsible for their own food.
BUDGET: Each residency comes with a materials budget: $250 for a one month residency and $500 for a 2-3 month residency.
