ELMO'S HOUSE ARTIST RESIDENCY
Elmo’s House Artist Residency opened its doors on February 2017. Over the last six months, the residency has welcomed more than a dozen artists, from Canada, US and Australia.
With patrons’ assistance through this campaign, we strive to achieve the following for our 2018 programming:
• major plumbing repairs
• a salary to employ local staff to facilitate and maintain Elmo’s House mandates
• assisting artists with high cost of travel and the shipping of their works
• tools, supplies and labour to build a fully equipped wood shop
• providing artists with a stipend
• developing community outreach initiatives
Watch our progress and follow us on:
Elmo’s House Artist Residency is a project started by Filipino-Canadian visual artist Kuh Del Rosario and designer/artist Ryan Romero.
Thank you again and please watch out for our little package of thanks in the coming month.
Many many thanks,
Kuh Del Rosario

We are currently busy with creating content for the website. There’s 6 months worth of artist profiles and projects that needs to be uploaded. So please stay tuned for our Newsletter for who has been here and for what has been happening at Elmo’s House.
We love our Patrons. We’re not able to do the work that we hope to do here at Elmo’s House without the support of our friends and colleagues. We are deeply sorry for this gross delay. The gifts have been made and they are awaiting to be sent. The Residents have been working on them and expect to see these in your mailbox soon!
There is much work still to be done. Your support and encouragement has been invaluable. The past six months has shown us how Elmo’s House has the potential to positively affect a small town like Batan through relationships and Contemporary Art.
Thank you again for believing and putting your trust in our project.
Please share with your friends and colleagues about Elmo's House as we are unable to continue without your support. Thank you <3
