Six Month Family Friendly Residencies

The Artist Home Project

No Funding
Belen, United States


Our residencies are open to families of artist focused on growth and community. We accept artists, musicians, writers, etc. If you define your work as art, we will gladly consider your application! We are looking for inspirational and uplifting, you create whatever that means to you! For our families with children: During the school year, our residencies work best for families who home school, or unschool. If you choose to try and use public schooling, that will be something for you to consider on your own. Your children are still your responsibility! While you are on our property, we will have many family nights and fun activities available for everyone, however your family is still your first priority! Please be mindful of your children, and ask that they be mindful of the space and other families around them. We accept families from all backgrounds and walks of life. We also expect our residency families to also keep an open mind as well.

Number of Participants

We are open to all family sizes, as long as you are comfortable living together in a tiny home structure with limited bedding. A family for us is two or more people that identify as a family and are already living together. Children and pets are welcome. No aggressive pets please, and a preventative damage waiver will be signed for all animals.
