The multi-disciplinary Residency Program at Crosstown Arts provides individuals and/or artist collectives with time and space to focus on their work. Residencies provide live space (if needed), private studio space, meals, and access to a shared art-making workspace for up to sixteen residents at a time for 20 days to 10 month stays, based on an application procedure using outside judges. The program includes visual and performing artists, musicians, filmmakers and writers in all genres.

The Residency Housekeeper will clean all residency live spaces as needed — 12 studio units and 2 two-bedroom apartments, as well as a shared living room, kitchen and laundry room. This could grow to include two musician’s houses across the street from Concourse in the neighborhood. The housekeeper will be responsible for regularly washing linens and outsourcing linens when there is a high volume of cleaning needed. The Housekeeper will clean all residency common areas (communal laundry room, kitchen, living room and hallways) on a regular basis. During high volume turn-over periods of residency live spaces the housekeeper will oversee additional staff as needed. The housekeeper will also maintain storage areas and manage and inventory all supplies. In addition, the housekeeper will be responsible for the daily upkeep of the Crosstown Arts staff kitchen.

The position reports to directly to the Residency Manager. This position requires flexibility - there are a limited number of daily duties and random apartment cleaning when there is a turnover of a guest, as well as high need times during session turnovers when most or all of the apartments will need to be cleaned.
