Monira Residencies – JERSEY CITY Open Call

May 6 @ 9:00 am - June 28 @ 12:00 am EDT

Apply to be an Artist-in-Residency in JERSEY CITY!

Applications will open May 6 – June 28, midnight EST

Who We Are:

Since 2011, the Monira Foundation (formerly Mana Residencies) has awarded rent-free, non-living studio space to artists in Chicago, Jersey City, and Miami. Started by Karline Moeller and Ysabel Pinyol Blasi, this residency was through invitation only, but for the first time in 2023, we will be accepting artists through an open call. This residency is the gift of time, space, and community for artists.


Our mission is to provide a stimulating, rigorous, and contemplative environment where talented and committed artists benefit from a large studio workspace and the support of a vital creative surrounding community. Studio space is still critical to the practices of the overwhelming majority of artists but remains at a premium, especially in major Urban areas like Chicago; a residency at Monira facilitates production and helps strengthen professional and intellectual bonds among diverse individuals.

Program Overview and Facilities:

Selected Artists will have access to a private studio of about 500 square feet. Each space has a sink and basic studio equipment like a work table and chairs. The spaces are adaptable to artists’ needs, with ample natural light, multiple electrical outlets, and internet access. There is also a shared kitchen space onsite.


Residents are given a stipend each cycle for providing a public program and fully participating in the residency. The 2024-25 cycle stipend amount will be $1,250.


In addition to much-needed physical space, residents will receive visits from artists, curators, critics, and collectors at specific points during their residency.
