The Foundation offers three months of rent-free and utility-paid housing to people who specialize in the creative arts. Our eleven artist casitas, or guest houses, are fully furnished and provide residents with a peaceful setting in which to pursue their creative endeavors.
The Foundation accepts applications from painters, poets, sculptors, writers, playwrights, screenwriters, composers, photographers, and filmmakers of national and international origin.
Artists in residence have no imposed expectations, quotas, or requirements during their stay on the HWF campus. The HWF’s residency program provides artists with the time and space to create, which in turn enriches the artistic community and culture locally and abroad.
Residency Experience Summary
The annual deadline for applications is January 18th to be considered for a residency grant the following calendar year.
Half of the fee ($150) is held as a damage deposit. The other half is kept for casita maintenance & supplies.
In certain cases, and dependent on the donor-supported Artist Stipend Fund, the Foundation may be able to assist with grocery expenses.
