HWF Artist-in-Residence Program

Taos, NM, United States

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.

How much of the residency experience can artists with limited mobility participate?

Artists with limited mobility can participate in most, or all, of the residency experience. All of the buildings on our campus have ground-level entrances. Artists with limited mobility can experience the essence of the residency experience: the time to create in their own space (casita/studio). However, supplemental off-campus experiences like hiking and other outdoor activities available in the area may be difficult to experience having limited mobility. 

Please briefly describe the facilities and areas of the campus that are NOT accessible.

The roads throughout the campus, as well as in Taos in general, do not have proper sidewalks.
