AIRIE’s residency program provides artists the opportunity to live and work inside Everglades National Park, the largest tropical wilderness in the United States. We connect artists with park rangers, scientists, biologists, cultural historians, and community leaders to promote the understanding of the unique ecosystem of the Everglades, and our environment at large.
Experiences are tailored to the interests of each individual artist, creating opportunities for independence and solitude, as well as interaction, collaboration and public engagement.

How can we make the outdoors a space of belonging?
Preservation of our natural environment and the fight against climate change will only be successful if there is racial equity in the movement. Historically, Black, Indigenous, People of Color and other marginalized voices have been devalued and suppressed in environmental conversations. AIRIE believes artists have the communicative ability to lead society to a more inclusive and just future. Over the course of the 2022 season AIRIE is investigating how we can make the outdoors a space of belonging. We ask you, the artist, to engage with this theme and the natural world through your artistic practice as we build new paths forward.
AIRIE’s mission, in partnership with the Everglades National Park, is to empower artists to think creatively and critically about their relationship to the environment with a mission of revealing new paths forward.
Over the past 20 years, Artists in Residence in Everglades has welcomed over 185 artists, writers, curators, choreographers, musicians and other creatives to its residency program, permeating the national and international art landscape with unique interpretations and stories of the Everglades.
