The amazing historic tree-lined Prospect Lefferts Gardens on Maple Street between Nostrand and New York Ave. A heavily Caribbean influenced neighborhood filled with great music and excellent jerk delights you are also walking distance to cafes, bars, and the almighty Prospect Park!
This is the exact cost we pay for rent and utilities. No more, no less. We can help facilitate the acquisition of additional funding to help cover costs associated with residency (fee, travel, supplies, etc). Each application fee helps make the program more affordable for each artist!
Please stay tuned for upcoming deadlines.
