Fogo Island Arts’ international residency program provides opportunities for artists from a wide range of disciplines to live and work on Fogo Island for periods ranging from two to four months. Artists-in-residence are provided with accommodation and studio space, as well as a weekly stipend to offset the costs of materials, shipping, and day-to-day living expenses. Most travel expenses are also covered. Artists-in-residence must give one public presentation, performance, workshop, or lead a similar event during their residency.

Most FIA artists-in-residence are selected through invitation and partnerships. A general call for applications for a limited number of residency spots is held every two years, while specific calls for applications made possible through partnerships are released regularly.
