Host an artist
We have dozens of RAD Artists who come into town from all over the world to participate in the festival. Each year, we ask members of the Kalamazoo/Portage community to graciously open up their homes to RAD Artists during their stay in the Kalamazoo area. Most RAD Artists do not do not have extra funds to pay for lodging, and none of them are picky. Even if you can only offer a couch or air mattress, some may just take you up on it! All RAD Hosts receive complimentary tickets to the RAD performances of their choice. Questions? Click here: FAQS. If you are interested in hosting an artist, click this link to sign up: HOST.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org, and she will send you a form to fill out and return.
