To support New York artists during these trying times, StonehengeNYC is giving apartments to twenty creatives -- for one year -- in exchange for regular commissions of their work. Our goal is to uplift this vital part of our community, by easing the financial burden of city living. We recognize that artists are essential to the fabric of New York City. Through our inaugural Still Standing residency, we will give creatives the space to create groundbreaking work, while leading our city into it's next chapter.

Who Can Apply for the Still Standing Residency?

This opportunity is open to artists across all mediums -- musicians, performing artists, multimedia creators, painters, visual artists, instagram influencers, writers -- if you create, we want to hear from you!

As with any residency, there are a few details for eligibility.
  • You must be eligible to live and work in NYC. While we certainly want to hear from our New Yorkers, we welcome any artist interested in contributing to this historic community to apply. Both locals and out-of-state creatives are encouraged to submit an application. 
  • Unfortunately, StonehengeNYC is unable to sponsor visas. If you're an international artist interested in joining our Still Standing residency, you will need to handle these details personally.
  • While we're continuously inspired by our young creators, you must be 18+ years of age to apply.
  • The Still Standing residency is open to emerging and established artists alike. So don't be intimidated if your an early-career creator -- we want to hear from you as well! We do require two professional references and a resume, as part of the application submission. However, if your previous work is limited, just use it as an opportunity to tell us about yourself. Likewise, we simply need the name, contact information, and relationship to your professional references-- while letters of recommendation are welcome, they are not required.
 

Keep in mind that the application deadline has been extended to January 10, 2021 11:59pm. We will not accept incomplete applications. We look forward to your submissions, and thank you for standing with New York City!
