The Artist Residency Program is simply reduced weekly rates for people wishing to devote themselves to their creative pursuits.

The Sou’wester offers the perfect setting for a supportive and distraction-free week. The program suits all kinds of artists from writers, musicians, visual artists, craftsmen, cooks, engineers, and more. It is available year-round and generally runs from Sunday at 4:00p to Friday at 11:00a. Artists receive reduced weekly rates ranging from $200-$450/week, depending on the season and your accommodation.

After participating in our residency, we respectfully ask that you acknowledge the “Sou’wester Artist Residency Program” in the final product of the work created during your stay and take time to fill out an exit interview.

You will also be added to our Artist Residency Archive, a beautifully curated gallery of the works and bios of our residents. (Please note, this is a work in progress, and has not yet launched. Please also note that this is an option and not a requirement of your residency here at The Sou’wester.)


Sou’wester Arts is providing support to underrepresented voices by providing 2 individuals per month a sponsorship of an artist or wellness residency at the Sou’wester. Applications accepted from BIPOC, LGBTQ, and/or artists/people working on social activism, equality, or identify as underrepresented.

The selection committee of Sou’wester Arts staff and board will review applications quarterly (awarding 6 residencies) based on portfolio review and proposal.

The Artist Residency Program is reduced weekly rates for people wishing to devote themselves to their creative pursuits. The Wellness Residency is a self guided stay with the intention of providing guests with “transformational travel” – where folks leave feeling renewed, restored and with a deeper connection to self and/or community. Both are available year-round and generally run from Sunday at 4:00p.m. to Friday at 11:00a.m.

Sponsored Residencies are free.
