Houston Center for Photography (HCP) is pleased to partner with Houston Center for Contemporary Craft (HCCC) to offer a new Interdisciplinary Craft + Photography Artist Residency, a program designed for artists creating work at the intersection of contemporary craft and photography.

This three-month residency supports artists with an experimental, multidisciplinary edge, who are testing the boundaries within both fields. Interdisciplinary Craft + Photography residents will be hosted in a studio space at HCCC and will receive all the benefits of regular HCCC resident artists.

Benefits include 24/7 access to studio space, cultural and professional development opportunities, and a monthly stipend that includes a small housing/materials allowance. In addition, residents will receive printing credits and full access to the Digital Lab at HCP. Artists will participate in a joint artist talk and will be included in HCCC’s annual In Residence exhibition, as well as receive a feature in HCP’s spot magazine.
