En Residencia is an annual Artist in Residence program with an emphasis on social practice and community engagement. It supports four Latino artists from a variety of disciplines for a period of six months, providing space to develop ideas and produce new work within the context of the Koubek Center and its surrounding neighborhood, Little Havana.
