Interstate Projects is pleased to announce its new Writing and Research Residency Program.

Continuing our mission as a non-profit arts organization, Interstate Projects is initiating this program to meet the challenges of creative process and production in the face of real estate and market effects. In line with our Studio Residency Program, this program is being created to give Writers and Researchers space and time to nurture their intellectual pursuits in a supportive environment as well as access to New York's diverse creative communities.
