APPLY FOR ARTIST IN RESIDENCY PROGRAM

If you are a visual artist/photographer, enjoy a working studio located in historic Algiers Point, complete with easels, tables and great lighting in a setting only to be found in New Orleans. If you are musically inclined, you are one block from a local only to be found in NOLA bar that has live, local music and are only a 10 minute drive or ferry ride to Preservation Hall and Snug harbor. While a short ferry ride leads you directly to the bustling French Quarter, the small, village like town surrounded by nature provides a nice escape from the hectic city.
