Where do you go to find your muse? Artist residencies exist to allow artists and like-minded individuals the opportunity to seek sanctuary for the creative process –a time and space away from their usual environment and obligations. It provides time for reflection, research, production, and immersion into new cultures. Every residency is different in their approach. There is no single model, and the expectations and requirements can vary greatly. The relationship between the resident and the host is often an important aspect of a residency program. Designed for those who are looking to advance their practice, or, for the seasoned residency applicant, Artist Residencies 101 gives an insider perspective from the point of view of both the artist and organization the search process, expectations and range of beneficial outcomes.
