About the Residency

In partnership with the Everglades National Park, AIRIE operates a live/work residency program with a mission to support and enhance the arts and cultural heritage of the Everglades subtropical wilderness.

AIRIE arranges introductions to park rangers, scientists, biologists, historians, artists, cultural and community leaders to enhance their understanding of the unique and fragile ecosystem of the Everglades. Residency experiences are tailored to the interests of each individual artist, creating opportunities for independence and solitude, as well as interaction, collaboration and public engagement as each artist desires.
