Artist Residency


"We Build it" 

We are looking for residents who want to gain experience in construction, craftsmanship, and building creative spaces. As a 555 Arts Resident, you will work alongside other artists, builders, and community members to activate and transform the area into community space for artists and the neighborhood, all while gaining new skills and interacting with the surrounding community in Detroit.

Residency House - Work with 555 artists and builders to transform the 1912 home into living and working space for future artists in Residence.

Art Park & Foundry - Set up a working foundry for casting Iron, bronze, and aluminum sculpture. Residents will work with 555 staff and create a piece to be installed in the Art Park or surrounding neighborhood.

Banner Tobacco Building - This 4 story building needs a lot of love and creative ways to make it a sustainable artspace. We welcome ideas for solar, wind, and water collection, as well as maintenance and art installations.
