Studio Residency Program

ArtSpan offers below market-rate studio rentals to artists in San Francisco as part of a cooperative residency program. Artists must be new or existing ArtSpan Artist Members ($50 annual) to be eligible to apply. Click here for membership information. 

Studio space is offered to artists who have recently been displaced from their San Francisco studios, those who have never had a studio (outside of home or school), and those with a project-based need for work space. The selected artists are expected to contribute as cooperative and collaborative members of the studio community, to volunteer with ArtSpan, and to participate with SF Open Studios in the fall. See below for studio residency location(s) and application details.
