Program Description

Our residency includes a shared studio, accommodations for each resident, group meals, access to visiting curators and professionals, equipment, staff support, and excursions to places of interest on Crete. In this time of inflation, the actual cost of our residencies has risen exponentially. Through the generosity of individual donors and foundation partners, Mudhouse Residency is able to offer three Full Fellowships for residency sessions this summer. The Full Fellowship covers the residency fee of €2400.
