CEPA’s artist residency program offers artists from around the globe a chance to apply for a number of 6-week work-based residencies, which are filled on a rolling basis dependent on available funding.
Selected artists are provided housing in CEPA’s artist live work space and an honorarium that averages $750/week, intended to cover living expenses and project costs. In addition, artist residency winners have full access to CEPA’s darkroom and digital photo lab, as well as our impressive roster of technical and production support contacts. Funding for residencies varies depending on funding and purpose.
