Invest in the strong collective voice of creative freedom. Support the Alliance!


Since our founding in 1991, the Alliance of Artists Communities has nurtured a generation of residency professionals. We are the leading advocate for artist residency programs, working on behalf of 450+ member organizations. Our vibrant network includes organizations in every US state and over 23 countries, providing direct support to over ten thousand artists each year. 

Residencies are platforms for transformation – places that inspire and support artists in their vital role in creating culture in our society. Help the Alliance ensure that the field and its leadership have the tools needed to sustain and expand opportunities around the world!

Residencies are platforms for transformation – places that inspire, connect and support artists in their vital role in creating culture in our society. With the growth of the field have come greater demands and challenges. If you value the Alliance’s work and have benefited from it, you can bolster the Alliance’s efforts in advancing the residency field. By making a contribution to AAC, your gift will support:

  • A strong professional development program, including an annual conference, webinars, regional consortiums – ensuring all residency leaders have a seat at the table and the tools they need to succeed.
  • Advocacy for the interests of artist residencies and the collective field before policy and funding agencies, nationally and globally.
  • Updated online tools and resources and strategic use of social media to promote best practices.
  • Research and benchmarking data to document and communicate the impact of residencies as well as institutions that embed artists in their programs.

We love residencies. We love artists. And we love the amazing potential of our network, to advance creative practice and human connection. We hope that you will add your voice to sustain the culture of generosity that is the cornerstone of our field.
