What's in Delaware?

TPAIRR! Trailer Park Artist in Residence Rehoboth!

TPAIRR is located off of the Coastal Highway in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Our trailer park sits in a rare setting between America's growing strip malls & outlet stores & two beautiful state parks, the atlantic ocean, and breathtaking marsh lands.

Trailer Park Artist in Residence annually bestows up to 5    artists a unique opportunity to relax, connect, and enjoy  Coastal Delaware. Open to artists of all mediums who would like the space to breathe, be with nature and live in an uncommon setting.

Our definition of artist does not exclude anyone. We are all artists whether we would like to call ourselves such or not. However, we are asking you to describe a project you would like to have time to think about, need the space to reflect on a recent project, or are just looking to connect with your inner self and nature.

Each residency length ranges from 3-5 days during the late summer & fall months.

Applications are now open for August, September, October, & November 2019. 

Applications will close April 13th and residency recipients will be notified no later than April 20, 2019.
