To apply, please read the application guidelines below.

Application Guidelines:

The GuestHaus Residency provides housing only and does not function as a business or grant organization. We offer the use of our detached guesthouse as a means of support for artists and scholars visiting and contributing to cultural production in Los Angeles. No money or labor is exchanged between the participating parties; however, we do require that certain terms be met. 

It is the applicant’s responsibility to communicate these policies to the hosting organization, and both parties (the applicant and their host organization) must agree to these terms prior to acceptance. Recognition of these terms is required in writing.  Space has been built into the application for this purpose, and the host organization should include acknowledgement of the terms in their Letter of Invitation.  The terms are as follows:

The GuestHaus Residency requires recognition of support on any project or research-related published materials (print or digital) produced by the hosting organization or artist. Upon acceptance we will provide our logo (sized for print and digital media) along with our approved support tag to facilitate this recognition.

While located only 10-15 minutes from Downtown Los Angeles, the residency’s remote hillside location requires that each guest have his or her own means of transportation (i.e. vehicle). Street parking is available as well as a separate stairway entrance from the public sidewalk to the guesthouse. 

Along with a completed and signed application, the following documents must be submitted before your application is considered:

Letter of Invitation from the host institution(s) or sponsor(s) in Los Angeles.  This letter must include an agreement of the terms described above and can be emailed to

Two references including name, title, affiliation, and a direct contact number.

Professional Statement (artist or otherwise) and CV

We accept applications two months prior to the dates requested.  All materials must be submitted prior to being considered for the residency.  Last minute applications will be considered.  Filling out and submitting this application does not guarantee acceptance. A signed Liability Waiver is required, upon acceptance.  Please allow time for scheduling to be set before being contacted.
