The selected collaborating residents (maximum 2 individuals) would share the residence and studio space. The collaborating artists/writers each must submit an application for consideration. We recognize it can be challenging for artists and writers with dependents to attend a residency program. New this year the Good Hart Artist Residency will provide a residency opportunity that allows a selected resident to bring up to two dependents and a caregiver if needed.
