Artist Residencies in Key West
The Studios of Key West offers up to forty juried residencies per year to working artists and writers from around the world. Residencies are awarded to visual artists, writers, composers, performers, and interdisciplinary artists.
Up to four residents at any given time can be hosted at TSKW’s residency cottages (known as The Ashe Street Cottages and The Mango Tree House).
Three of the four residency living spaces available have a small working studio space attached which is appropriate for writing and/or non-industrial art making. Residencies are available for one month, and residency terms extend from the beginning to end of each calendar month. Residents may arrive any day after the first of the month.
Artists are responsible for food, travel, and materials. Artists are granted access to a bicycle for the duration of their stay and are matched with a community member who serves as a host to assist with the success of their residency.
The Studios of Key West is a professional non-profit cultural organization now in its fifth year as a multidisciplinary presenter, arts center, and artist residency provider. TSKW is driven by a distinct cultural and educational mission to support creative community development, nurture artists and the artistic process, while forging collaborations that celebrate and advance Key West's unique sense of place. We offer studio space, lectures, workshops, residencies, partnership projects and nurture the creation of work.
