Send in your applications now!
The ArtsEdge Residency project is designed to encourage and support the
careers of emerging artists and writers. Through ArtsEdge Residencies,
we offer two one-year residencies in a live/work space near Penn's
campus. ArtsEdge aims to support the creative work of young artists and
writers, and create a live/work environment that will inspire
Residencies last for one year and include a dedicated studio for each
writer/artist, living space, and close affiliation with the writing and
artistic communities at Penn. During the course of their residencies,
writers and artists will develop at least one collaborative project with
the Writers House or Fine Arts Department. Qualified applicants may also
be considered to teach one course at Penn in the spring semester.
Two residencies are available, one for a visual artist and one for a
writer. The residences are not intended for current undergraduates. No
affiliation with Penn is necessary.
Each residency includes a one-bedroom apartment with an additional
studio space. Subsidized monthly rent on each one-bedroom apartment (for
which residents are responsible) is $400. Rent includes all utilities
(except phone) and wireless Internet. The Writers House, the Fine Arts
Department, and FRES will subsidize remaining rent.
