Convenings

The Alliance of Artists Communities hosts events and trainings each year - bringing together residency leaders, funders + artists from across the world. Members can attend events at a discount, propose content and vote at the annual town meeting.  Programs currently offered are listed below: 

Emerging Program Institute

Emerging Program Institute

This bootcamp was designed for individuals developing or re-assessing residency programs and combines best practices from the nonprofit arts sector with specific, hands-on information about artists' residencies. Emerging Program Institutes are a time to connect with leaders from throughout the field, visit innovative residency programs and gather resources on best practices. If you are interested in or involved in launching a new residency program, you won't want to miss this annual training! [ learn more ]
