As RedLine's foundational program, our 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. RedLine Artist Residents receive mentorship, career development, and promotion, and all artists receive fully subsidized studio spaces, which provides financial flexibility, giving Residents the freedom to explore and experiment, without commercial constraints.

The RedLine Artist Residency also allows artists to work in proximity to their peers, within a community of mutual support that fosters networking and collaboration. RedLine Residents have opportunities to work closely with communities in Northeast Denver, through our programs that engage students at local public schools, as well as youth and adults experiencing homelessness. By merging contemporary art with arts education and community involvement, RedLine Residents help bring the transformative power of art to the surrounding neighborhoods and beyond.

RedLine's Artists-in-Residence program embodies our mission to foster education and engagement between artists and communities to create positive social change. In 2018 we invited 12 new residents and 3 resource artists. Because of this large pool of artists we would only have one studio available in 2019 for 1-2 artists.

We want to honor all the applicants time and energy, therefore RedLine will not be posting a call for artists this year. Please note that RedLine will re-open the call for artists in March of 2020, and accept new artists in September 2020.
