Apply here: Residency at the Museum Application
Founded in 2023, Residence at the Museum (RATM) is an artist residency program administered by the Imperial Calcasieu Museum of Lake Charles, Louisiana. We’re a program that fosters a creative incubator space for artists where they are afforded time, space, and monetary resources to develop their artistic endeavors over the course of a nine-month residency. Our residents will have opportunities to engage with arts professionals, partner organizations, and other supporters of the arts in the community. These residencies are project-based and engagement-driven, so prospective applicants should be aware that they will occasionally be forward-facing to the public.
Artists selected for this program are at all stages of their careers and work in media including drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, film, video, new media, mixed media, book arts, and graphic design.
RATM fosters creativity through opportunities for residents to examine their own artistic practices in close proximity to other creatives. Impromptu studio visits, discussions, critique sessions, and an overarching approach with cooperation at the forefront serve to imbue our spaces with a creative energy and enthusiasm infectious to the community at large.
Located in the heart of downtown Lake Charles, RATM finds itself nestled in an area primed for creatives to take advantage of the space. Our studios are within walking distance of food, entertainment, and other cultural resources, and will serve as a fulcrum of Lake Charles’ artistic cultural development.
