The Residency Program provides space and time for artists (visual artists, writers, musicians, performance artists) to create art in a unique and supportive environment. Elsewhere consists of artistically crafted living and studio spaces. Time spans are individually based - 1 to 6 months. The residencies are partially subsidized. The cost to the artist is between $600 and $850 per month depending on the space - utilities and WiFi included. (Our cost is $2500/month per artist). Please inquire about additional scholarships.
Elsewhere is a choose-your-own-adventure style residency. Situated in downtown Paonia, the spaces are versatile, providing residents with opportunities to connect and interact with other artists in the community, to create or participate in art exhibitions, and to teach classes or workshops.
Please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to be on a list to be notified of openings due to cancellations.
