Make Art Somewhere Beautiful: The Ins and Outs of Artist Residencies

March 27, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 pm


Artist residencies can be incredible opportunities for emerging and professional artists to develop their artistic practices. They can also provide you with a community of collaborators, support for your work, and a robust creative network. That sounds great, but applying for them can be an overwhelming task! This workshop will provide a rundown of all things artist residences, with practical tips for successful applications. This workshop will include a presentation, plenty of time for open Q+A, and attendees will receive a copy of the presentation slides.
