Applications are now available for SVA's Summer Residency Programs—on-campus in New York City and across online platforms, offering artists, designers and creative thinkers time, space and a supportive community in which to develop ideas and focus on their artistic direction.

Daily critiques, workshops, studio visits, lectures, and social events augment participants' independent work.

Participants in the Summer Residency Program have the benefit of working in SVA’s dynamic, culturally rich environment. Each program offers access to its own unique set of resources and spaces, whether on-campus or online, that have been designed with artists and creative thinkers in mind.

With an emphasis on shared experience and community building, The Summer Residency Program provides a platform where participants can build and expand their networks and create lifelong connections with artists, critics, curators and other arts professionals.
