Special Programs

CMS Artist In Residence Program

The Claremont MakerSpace (CMS) Artist In Residence Program is designed to empower New Hampshire and Vermont based artists with tools, training and space to create compelling new work. Each CMS Artist In Residence receives $800 towards the creation of new work at the CMS, two months of Unlimited CMS Membership, a dedicated studio space at the CMS, and training to use new tools. Each residency runs for two months.

All mediums and levels of experience are welcome to apply. Residencies are open to both NH and VT artists. Artists from New Hampshire may apply to any of the five residency periods. Artists from Vermont may apply for the second and fifth residency.

Applications for the next residency (R2) are being taken now. With the disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic, specific start dates to the next residency periods will decided at a later time. To apply for the CMS Artist In Residence program, please fill out the online application.

The CMS Artist In Residence Program and TwinState MakerSpaces, Inc. is supported in part by the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
