Please make a mental note of this quality of the program before applying:

* The house is located near Antigua (in Jocotenango) it is a 15 min. chicken bus ride into the main parts of town.

** Our residencies are solo residencies meaning we host one resident or two collaborators (w/ shared room) at a time.

*** We assist with project development and research as much as possible to create a platform of support, conversation, reflection, and accessibility. That said, all needs and desires are not always possible to access and the primary work does lie in the hands of resident themselves.

-Applicants are encouraged to consider (both on application and during their stay) how their work or research will interact with Guatemala as a place, community and culture, and to reflect on their role and responsibility as a an artist or researcher learning and creating in a new location. Due to the limited time-frame, we are less focused on residents’ capability to learn / produce / execute, and more so on the thoughtful process and purpose from which we are doing so.
