Supporting the work of thinkers and makers who envision and enact new possibilities for our world
We are developing a multidisciplinary residency program that invites visionaries across creative practices into W.S. Merwin’s home, and into the palm garden born of his abiding sense of wonder. This program nurtures the work of artists, writers, scientists, and thinkers who make us think anew about the complicated beauty and the possibilities of our world.
In December 2021, we entered the first phase of this program. All residents during this time will be recommended by a nominating committee. During this phase, there will not be an open call for applications.
We are grateful to William True for full and generous support of our pilot residency program in 2021 and 2022.

While this program is in development, we are active and engaged Emerging Programs members of the Artist Communities Alliance and through this membership are participating in dialogue with a network of residencies around the country and around the world.
