Situated across from Lake Montebello near Morgan State University, Studio House is a community that allows artists to grow their network in Baltimore City. It's a nexus for communion, restoration and creativity. The residency is open (but not limited to) visuals artists, photographers, writers, curators, musicians, filmmakers ect. This space is facilitated by Mahari Chabwera, in partnership with the CAN Foundation. Our goal is to bring together a rotating group of artists who have demonstrated a commitment to upliftment, and connect them to projects, resources, makers and movers operating whole heartedly in the DMV area.

Studio House offers artists the opportunity to work collaboratively in a 4,400 sq. ft. building. Each artist has a spacious private bedroom, shared bathroom, living room, kitchen, balcony and studio. 

Studio House offers many benefits to participating artists including, but not limited to:
*Co-working studio space
*A chance to explore your craft in a different environment
*Network and collaborate with other artists and art professionals
*Mentorship, critiques, and brainstorming with art professionals
*Studio visits with other artists and professionals throughout Baltimore and surrounding areas
*Documentation of artists’ time in the residency
*Group Field Trips to art institutions, parks, exhibitions etc. 

Cost: $850/month
This cost covers housing, studio space, utilities and one group meal a week.
