As RedLine's foundational program, the Artist Residency remains at the core of all the we do as an organization. We offer two-year residencies for 15-18 emerging, contemporary artists. In addition to mentorship, career development, and promotion, artists receive fully subsidized studio spaces, which provides financial flexibility and frees artist to explore and experiment without commercial constraints.

A RedLine residency also allows artist to work in proximity to their peers within a community of mutual support that fosters networking and collaboration. RedLine residents also have opportunities to work closely with communities in Northeast Denver through programs that engage student at local public school as well as youth and adults experiencing homelessness. By merging contemporary art with arts education and community involvement, RedLine helps bring the transformative power of art to the surrounding neighborhoods and beyond.
