The Chetwood warmly welcomes artists, writers, filmmakers, chefs, performers, and other creative souls visiting the Bay Area who need temporary lodging while they work on a project, attend a residency, install an exhibition or are otherwise involved in some creative endeavor in our neighborhood. Read more about The Chetwood alumni here

The fee for one week at The Chetwood is $1000.  We plan to install a Residency Program in 2017 which will provide one week of free lodging for an artist visiting the Bay Area in order to complete a specific project in conjunction with a Bay Area organization. Please follow The Chetwood on Instagram and/or sign up for the newsletter at the bottom of the page for updates on fun(d)raising events that will help make this subsidized program happen.
