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.

CALL FOR APPLICATION for the Artist Residency Program is posted every year, in early summer. Come back to this page for more info.
