Gracia hosts residents in a private home located in the outskirts of Antigua Guatemala.

Previous residents have included filmmakers, painters, photographers and others. Please read more about our residency and mission HERE.

You don’t need to be an artist or a creative person to apply – that language may appear but please let it be clearly known ANY person working or not working in ANY FIELD or profession or practice is ENCOURAGED to apply.


The program is focused on your creative practice and all the ways it can manifest.

Residents work independently on proposed project or research.

Residents are also encouraged to do nothing, to rest, to not work. To read one book slowly. Or go into town everyday and explore. You may design this residency however you wish.

Gracia provides residents with general orientation to Guatemala, research assistance and guidance towards project development and local resources.
