 Studio House residents are given the opportunity to work collaboratively in a 4,400 sq. ft. home, carving out a studio space to serve their practice. Everyone has access to their own spacious private bedroom, shared bathroom, shared living room, kitchen, balcony, front patio, and fenced in backyard.

Throughout their time in The house, artists receive studio visits from curators, collectors, art advisors, and flourishing artists in the field. Artists have the opportunity to participate in seasonal photoshoots, artist talks, and a yearly group exhibition. Additionally there optional group field trips to museums, galleries, the beach, farmers markets, yoga studios, and thrift stores. 

Studio House is open to visuals artists, photographers, writers, curators, musicians, filmmakers and anyone dedicated to developing their artistry. The residency  was founded by Mahari Chabwera in December 2021 through an early collaboration with the Contemporary Arts Network, and a current collaboration with AI creator and Investor Changrong Ji. 

Residency fee: $850/month

This cost covers housing, studio space, utilitiesseasonal  photoshoots, professional development opportunities and an annual group exhibition.
