About Us

Artists in Residence in Everglades (AIRIE)’s mission is to support and enhance the arts and cultural heritage of the Everglades subtropical wilderness through artist residency and public outreach programs.  

AIRIE operates a residency program for visual artists, writers, choreographers and composers in the Everglades National Park so that those creative professionals may gain experience and insight into this fragile unique wilderness, thereby becoming ambassadors for its appreciation and preservation.

For the safety and well-being of our artists, community and collaborators, AIRIE has postponed all residency activity and programming in the Everglades. The AIRIE Nest Gallery inside the Ernest F. Coe Visitors Center is closed, as is the main entrance to Everglades National Park, until further notice.

The AIRIE Application for 2021 residencies has been postponed. The application window and new deadline will be announced shortly.
