The Merriweather District Artist-in-Residence program began in 2018 to bring together three artists to work, live and create amongst the Downtown Columbia community.
With the partnership of the Downtown Columbia Arts and Culture Commission and Soulful Symphony, the residency will expand to include a fourth artists, who solely specializes in music and technology.
The four artists are selected through a international selection process and will be provided with a $12,000 stipend, studio space and housing for six weeks.
The residency includes artists from an incredible range of multi-media disciplines and is designed to allow artist to take risks and pursue new projects while receiving support. Unlike most programs, we are family-friendly allowing artist to holistically participate in the residency.
