The Creative Process Residency is our self-directed option open to all visual, performing and literary arts disciplines, as well as curators, researchers, creatives and philosophers. You’ll find information about availability, workspaces, rates and how to apply below.

Applications for residencies through 2022 are now being accepted on a rolling basis for all disciplines! 

Feel free to email us at to discuss availability and other needs before you apply.

Questions? We’re happy to speak with you before you submit your application.

We support interaction between visiting artists and the local community in the form of work-in-progress showings, demonstrations, readings, workshops or concerts. These encounters should serve the artist’s process, while also exposing a rural village to a vast variety of art forms and art-making processes. Let us know if you are interested in engaging with the community during your stay!

Participants must provide their own tools, equipment, and materials unless otherwise agreed with Greywood Arts. We are happy to help you locate and/or borrow what you need to the best of our ability. 

We are committed to developing a service that is accessible to artists.

  • We know artists are often parents, too. On a case by case basis, we may be able to accommodate families – please get in touch before applying. 
  • Greywood Arts is an inclusive, anti-racist space. Artists of all backgrounds, races, genders and sexual identities are welcome to apply.
  • We are unable to offer financial aid at this time, but funded opportunities will be listed on our website. We will always provide letters of support for funding sought by residents.
  • Looking for funding? Check the guides on Res Artis & TransArtists for resource ideas. 
  • We regret that we are not yet able to accommodate individuals with mobility disabilities. Our building is 250 years-old, and there are many stairs to navigate – bedrooms and studios are on the first and second floors (2nd/3rd floors US).
