This free summer program is available to artists or designers working in primarily visual mediums. The multidisciplinary environment is designed to foster new connections and ideas, and the nature of the communal space makes it best suited for those who are excited to collaborate and connect over shared meals. Residents should have at least some physical component to how their work manifests or is displayed (meaning, it is not purely digital). While most past residents have come from formal art backgrounds, we also encourage creatives from professional fields looking to deepen a developed art practice or specific project to apply.
By participating in the free program, residents agree to leave one work of art or artifact to the Shell House, to be agreed upon reasonably by both parties.
Need help with your application? Our partnership with WIP Projects gives you access to one-on-one writing advice and professional artist mentorship.
