The Studios at MASS MoCA offers residencies for artists and writers from 1 to 8 weeks. Selected participants receive private studio space on MASS MoCA’s campus, newly renovated housing (private bedroom, shared kitchen & bath) directly across the street from the museum, one group meal per day, free access to the museum’s galleries, optional financial and business coaching from MASS MoCA's Assets for Artists staff, and free use of Makers’ Mill, a printmaking and fiber arts makerspace located a short walk from the Studios. For this upcoming residency season, we're offering something more: two residency sessions with a special focus on "financial Wellness." A subset of the artists invited to participate in the fall/winter season will be offered slots in a two-week residency session that includes group workshops with artist experts on personal finance and business planning, and one-on-one assistance with financial and business planning, along with a $500 travel stipend. The residency fee for those sessions will be reduced to just $150/week. Interested applicants will provide additional information to be considered.
