Program Details and Application Guidelines

Program Details

Broad’s artist-in-residence program offers artists the opportunity to engage with Broad scientists and staff to develop a new collaborative project. Artists will have access to all of our buildings, events, and communal workspaces, and a Broad email address and phone number. Artists receive a one-time payment of $20,000, and a reimbursement for project materials up to $10,000. Start-date and duration of the program are determined with the selected artist and program staff according to the demands of an artist’s project. Typically, artists are in residence for at least one year. Artists may also show new, existing, or in-progress work as part of the Broad’s gallery program and/or host a public talk or other event.  

Our program does not include studio space, housing, or travel costs, so artists within commuting distance from Cambridge, MA have traditionally benefited most from the program. 

The Broad Institute seeks mid-career artists who are interested in Broad’s scientific work. We have historically worked with visual artists but are open to considering applications from artists in other disciplines as well. 

Broad’s Artist-in-Residence program is an experiment. As the program evolves, we will refine the program details and application process to ensure we continue to serve the Broad’s mission effectively.
