Family Residency Initiative

The family residency initiative offers a one-month residency to parent artists. SFAI recognizes the lack of residency opportunities for artists to be able to take advantage of residencies without having to leave their children behind. We are taking responsibility in doing our part to close that gap by offering an environment that supports both creative opportunities and the needs of artists with children. Families are generally hosted in July. Parent artists apply through SFAI’s annual thematic residency application. To find out more about this opportunity,please contact our Residency Program Manager at
