What is HFA?

Founded by Simon Draper, Habitat for Artists is a collective project that uses the idea of the artist’s studio as a catalyst for mutual engagement between artists and communities. The “habitats” are small, temporary, 6’ by 6’ studios installed at a variety of locations: some highly visible to the local community; others, more unexpected venues for experiencing art or connecting with the process of artists engaging in creative work. HFA invites artists to work in these small, temporary studios. And while exploring their own creative process, the artists engage in active dialogues with a new audience from that location. The public, meanwhile, is invited into a new interaction and discussion about art, the artist’s role, as well as topics which are pertinent or relevant to that local community.

Highlights from the 2018 HFA Season

The Habitat For Artists studio returned to WAAM for a second season, May 2 – July 29. HFA at WAAM has hosted over thirty artist residencies over the past two seasons offering creative community projects as diverse as cartoon illustration, contemporary choreography, mosaics, home-made lens photography and printmaking.  The HFA at WAAM is proud to bring those from near and abroad to participate, learn and create together.
