Returning Residency

Returning Residency

We're pleased to invite our Fellows, Collaborative Residents, Summer Program faculty and students, and alumni of the MassArt/FAWC MFA to participate in the Fine Arts Work Center's Returning Residency Program. The program is a great opportunity to escape energy-sapping routines, recharge creative batteries, and live and work surrounded by other artists and writers.

Please note residencies are based upon availability and Fellows are given priority.
