Part Airbnb, part artist residency, Artist Residency Swap offers the opportunity to work in far-flung places. Founded by artist Timo Wright and curator Anni Fahler, the aim was to create opportunities for artists who wish to benefit from residency periods in places other than their home studio but who may have familial responsibilities that keep them from traditional residencies. This site offers the chance to experience new and inspiring environments with the flexibility to bring the family.
