Residency Programs Profiles
A new tool for artists and organizations to find and compare residency programs.
Artist residencies provide artists, scholars, educators and other creative professionals with time, space and resources to work, individually or collectively, on the research and development of their practice. Click SEARCH on the left side, below the side navigation to access the search functions. Tag words and filtered searches help narrow results.
For artists, the residency experience begins with research. By selecting tag words or phrases and filtering searches based on location, discipline, context, and more, artists will better understand differences in programs and determine which residencies might be a good fit. After creating a filtered search, users can save the list of results. This saved list then becomes a resource for artists throughout the research and inquiry process. Artists can learn more about the residency experience here.
For Residency Staff
Residency staff and arts administrators may use the directory to find and connect with similar programs based on geography, typology or context. The directory is also a resource for learning about the policies, strategies, and program design of other organizations. Like artists, residency staff and arts administrators can narrow their searches using tags and filters and save the results as a reference list.
Find an upcoming or ongoing Open Calls:
> Search Upcoming Open Call Deadlines to access the upcoming deadlines, sorted chronologically by the deadline date.
> Search Ongoing Open Call Deadlines to access all ongoing deadlines. These open calls do not have a deadline and applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
