Program Description

The Jerome Emerging Artist Residency Program aims to meet the specific needs of emerging artists while welcoming them into a supportive and inspiring residency environment that empowers them to take risks, embrace challenges, and utilize unconventional approaches to problem-solving. Thanks to support from the Jerome Foundation, selected emerging artists receive $625/week in honoraria, plus documentation support, art-making resources, facilitation of community connections, lodging & studio space, a travel stipend, groceries, and chef-prepared communal dinners. The program is an ideal fit for early-career artists whose work reveals a significant potential for cultural and community impact, is technically accomplished, and engages diverse communities. A goal of the program is to advance the practice of early-career artists that are uncompromising in their approach to creation and production, and whose work pushes boundaries and explores new creative territories.
