Freehold Taos Residency Center

Freehold Taos is an international cultural organization in the New Mexico desert.

Description of residency program
Freehold Taos is an international cultural center that seeks to provide a serene workspace (a two-room adobe casita with a bedroom, office, full bath and a kitchenette) and quiet, uninterrupted time for writers to practice their craft. 

Duration of residency
Residencies are a minimum of one week with a maximum of one month. 

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance
Selective year-round residencies are open to writers, curators, artists and academics. The center is interested in writers working in all genres, curators and academics in all fields and artists working in small format, text-based work or plein air painting.

Freehold Taos Residency Center is located on Ute Mountain Ranch in Taos County, New Mexico. Selected residents stay in a beautiful, newly renovated casita that includes an office, bedroom, kitchenette and full bathroom. The ranch, situated on five acres overlooking Ute Mountain, is a refuge from the stresses of daily life. Residents are able to focus on their creative practice during their stay in the Rio Grande del Norte Monument. 

Studio/ workspace
The workspace is a two-room casita. One room has a work table, printer, internet and book case. The second room has a reading area, queen-sized bed, kitchenette and full bathroom. 

Fees and support
 Residents pay $500 a week to live and work in the casita. They will have free parking and access to the washer and dryer. They are responsible for their own food and supplies. 

Expectations towards the artist
 The artist is free to work on their project without any interference. They do not need to have a public workshop, exhibition or talk.
