Byrdcliffe Artist Residency Program 2019 in Woodstock, NY

Byrdcliffe offers fully and partially funded residencies to creatives in all disciplines for monthly, seasonal, and year round duration in a serene mountain community 2.5 hours north of NYC in the mountains of Woodstock NY. Iterations open to individuals and couples. Byrdcliffe’s AiR program is particularly beneficial to those who find it restorative to live in a simple, communal environment in close proximity to natural beauty. In our Monthly Air Program, artists may choose between communal living consisting of a private bedroom in a shared building with a separate private studio OR apply for one of two private live/work cottages in close proximity. Cottages may accommodate couples depending on their practices.
