Art Omi

An American organization located in Ghent, a city in New York state.


It has five different residency programs: architecture, music, dance, art, and literature. Art Omi invites writers and translators on the scholarship during the spring and fall terms. The mission of the program is to provide opportunities for writers to showcase their work and to meet artists from around the world. Art Omi provides writers with a place to work quietly and a variety of activities where they can talk to other artists and people from the publishing industry.


Stays last from 1 week to 2 months; the residency welcomes ten writers at one time. Accommodation, food and local transport costs are covered by Art Omi, while travel costs are not included in the scholarship.
