As Miami’s housing affordability crisis persists and rents skyrocket, local artists are facing a growing concern: Can we afford to live here? A local arts nonprofit’s new initiative offers a solution — at least for a few years. Oolite Arts, a Miami-based organization that provides resources to artists, announced the Knight Artist Housing Stipend, a multi-year program that gifts Oolite’s artists in residence with $12,000 a year to go toward housing costs starting in 2024. Oolite’s residency program provides artists with free studio space at the nonprofit’s Lincoln Road location for two years. Applications for the 2024 studio residency open July 12.
