Zoom Online Meet-Up | Considerations for the Remote or Solitary Residency

Join AAC and your residency colleagues for a series of online meet-ups on the Zoom video conferencing platform. Launched in 2017, these informal meet-ups cover a range of residency-specific topics and offer members a chance to connect, share ideas and troubleshoot challenges.  

Considerations for the Remote or Solitary Residency
Thursday, April 19th, 2018 2pm-3pm EST 

Away from familiar resources, off the beaten track, and often supporting a small number of residents at one time, the remote or solitary residency has lots of amazing advantages to offer, but some challenges too. This session will cover the essentials of running such a program, including the importance of communication, selecting for the right fit, and dealing with logistical challenges like transportation and food, preparing for power outages, inclement weather, resident anxiety, and other surprises. We'll leave ample time for an open discussion about the challenges and successes your own program has encountered. We'll also discuss issues of inclusion and equity around programs that often center in predominantly white, rural, and conservative areas.

These online meet-ups are designed not only to present helpful information, but to initiate conversations among members. We hope participants will find peers who are succeeding or struggling with similar issues, and continue the conversation after the session.Presented by Brad Kik (Crosshatch Center for Art and Ecology).
