We are currently accepting applications for residencies falling between Oct 2018 and Aug 2019. The deadline to apply is May 15, 2018.

The online application can be found here.

The Studios offers a residency program for emerging and established artists and writers designed to encourage creative, intellectual and personal growth. The program grants nearly 35 artists each year the time and space to imagine new artistic work, engage in valuable dialogue and explore island connections. Accepted 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’ residency program is community-based and built upon the hope that visiting artists will take inspiration from Key West’s rich artistic past and present, and will engage with — and be inspired by — the remarkable people and culture that surrounds them.

Residencies are almost a full month, and run from the 16th of the month through the 14th of the next.
