TEPOZTLAN 

RESIDENCY PROGRAM

This is a self-directed program. The house is set in a rural environment with an open air studio space overlooking the mountains. While the 2 participants work on their personal projects they are encouraged to present their work to fellow residents and staff members for feedback. We provide logistical and technical support for the successful realization of projects and a staff member will stay at the residency 2 to 4 nights a week. This residency program is ideal for independent artists who wish to have an inward focus to their residency experience and concentrate on their practice while having an authentic Mexican experience. 

 

The residency lasts for 1 to 3 months. There are no fixed start and end dates. Writers or artists with a writing practice are encouraged to apply. 

RESIDENCY SCHEDULE

Since it is a Self-Directed Artist-in-Residence Program, there is no fixed schedule. Casa Lü staff will be available to provide logistical support.
