Host an artist

RAD Artists may apply for our host an artist program. Some members of the Kalamazoo community voluntarily open their homes to RAD Artists during the festival. Hosts provide private bedrooms and others provide couches, air mattresses, and futons. A few hosts even offer transportation and offer to cook for their guests. The Host an Artist program is free of charge for participating artists. If you are interested in applying for the Host program, email Kyra Hickey at, and she will send you a form to fill out and return.
