Freehold Taos Residency Center began in 2017 as a program that provided a serene workspace and quiet, uninterrupted time for creatives to practice their craft. After the 2019 residency season in northern New Mexico, which will host an additional seven writers and artists, the FTRC will become FTRC Europe and will expand to a new location in Germany in an effort to align its international programming with its new global partners.
