Benefits of the residency include 24/7 access to studio space, cultural and professional development opportunities, a monthly stipend that includes a small housing/materials allowance, and the opportunity to give an artist talk.

Juried selection is based on quality of creative work, ability to interact with the public, career direction, and program diversity.  Accepted artists will be notified via e-mail in late May.

BIPOC Support Grant Provided by HCCC & Crafting the Future

HCCC and Crafting the Future (CTF) have partnered to introduce a new funding opportunity to support Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) craft artists. Crafting the Future works to diversify the fields of art, craft, and design by connecting BIPOC artists with opportunities that will help them thrive. By banding together and pooling the resources of like-minded artists and art appreciators, CTF is making the changes they want to see in communities around the country.

Residents who identify as BIPOC can receive unrestricted funding in addition to their monthly honorarium. The additional support ranges from $500 to $1,000 and can be awarded as a one-time gift or on a scheduled monthly basis to support their practice. To apply, please complete the “Support Grant” section on the application.

Interdisciplinary Craft + Photography Artist Residency
offered by 
Houston Center for Contemporary Craft and
Houston Center for Photography

The Interdisciplinary Craft + Photography (ICP) Artist Residency is designed for artists creating work at the intersection of contemporary craft and photography. This three-month residency supports artists with an experimental, multidisciplinary edge, who are testing the boundaries within both fields. ICP residents will be hosted in a studio space at HCCC and will receive all the benefits of regular HCCC resident artists.  In addition, from Houston Center for Photography (HCP), they will receive printing credits and access to the digital lab. Artists will participate in a joint artist talk and will be included in HCCC’s annual In Residence exhibition, as well as receive a feature in HCP’s spot magazine. Applicants must be able to demonstrate and address how their practice engages the fields of both craft and photography.
