We accept applications for one-week, two-week- and month-long residencies. Residencies include living accommodations, opportunities to lead several workshops and public demos/talks, lead discussions, and/or create a public art piece. Residents will have available work space, will be encouraged to collaborate with other area artists and makers, and will have the work created be displayed to the public in a gallery format.

Residents are housed in The Wherehouse Art Hotel, a revolving-door style hostel located in the locally-renown PS 211 warehouse, which has served as shared living-and-studio space for local and thru-passing artists and musicians since the early 1990s. Located above Krankies cafe and coffee roasters, a venture started by the arthouse's original squatting occupants, the "Wherehouse" has been responsible for the flourishing of Winston's underground culture of art and music, as well as many entrepreneurial endeavors that are now part of the lifeblood of our downtown.
