Hestia is the world's first nomadic artists' residency.


We provide creative practitioners from all disciplines with fellowships in a diversity of homes across the US.

In each city, our residents are invited into the local arts community, provided mentorship and {placeholder!} 

 

Artists, transformed by travel, chase inspiration toward new ideas. Hosts act as mentors, providing the nurturing space for creative risk-taking. Communities benefit from site-specific engagements & collaborations. 
 

At Hestia, we spark connection in unexpected spaces.
