TSKW offers an artists’ residency program designed to encourage the creative, intellectual and personal growth of emerging and established artists and writers. 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.

TSKW’s 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 run from the beginning to the end of each calendar month.
