Artist Residency Opportunities
Artist-in-residence programs give artists the opportunity to live and work outside of their usual environments, providing them with time to reflect, research, or produce work.
Residencies allow one to explore new locations and different cultures, or experiment with different materials. Much like study abroad programs, residencies are often aimed at young artists and can create deep, meaningful impact on their life and work.
