Apply for an Artist Residency
The Alliance of Artists Communities website hosts applications for artist residencies all over the world. Artists can submit applications throughout the calendar year and find out about upcoming deadlines here. The website includes several tools that help applicants find residencies that are a good fit, develop a strong application, create a budget, etc. Many residencies provide free room and board, and offer opportunities to connect with other artists or the local community.
In their own words, “The Alliance of Artists Communities is an international association of artists' residencies — a diverse field of more than 1,500 programs worldwide that support artists of any discipline in the development of new creative work. Believing that the cultivation of new art and ideas is essential to human progress, the Alliance's mission is to advocate for and support artists' communities, to advance the endeavors of artists.”
