Art Fair 14C, in partnership with GFP Real Estate, is pleased to offer 1-year live-work residency programs to artists in all disciplines.

The Project 14C program will offer more than 150 artists the opportunity to live and work in an innovative and creative incubator environment in Jersey City that is adjacent to the global arts capital of New York City.

Artists will be given professional development training, mentorship and opportunities for exhibition and performance.

Project 14C is taking over the former Alliance University athletic dormitory spaces to create a unique residency opportunity for artists of all disciplines.

The program is designed to help artists seeking to establish full-time careers in the arts by providing live-work space in the creative community of 150 Bay Street, in the heart of the Powerhouse Arts District in downtown Jersey City.

Residency program includes:

  • Live-work space for a period of 1 year (3-month residencies available for international artists unable to get visas of longer duration)
  • Creative community with 150+ artists of all disciplines
  • Mentorship
  • Professional development assistance
  • Opportunities to exhibit and perform
  • Access to the cultural and economic opportunities of the New York metro area

Although 14C has been primarily a visual arts organization since its beginning in 2018, the Project 14C program is open to artists in all creative categories. There is no requirement to produce or show work during the residency, the residency serves as an incubator for artists seeking professional advancement in the New York City area.
