BURNAWAY continually seeks innovate new ways to bring national attention to local art communities. With the Critic-in-Residence program, BURNAWAY hosts arts writers in Atlanta for one-week stays, which include artist studio visits, as well as museum, gallery, and private collection tours. Designed for the critic who prioritizes connection, discussion, and community engagement, residents are invited to give a public lecture, conduct a student writers’ workshop, and participate in a peer-to-peer discussion group during their stay.
BURNAWAY’s Critic-in-Residence program is changing the way cities can work together to support artists and their audiences. Working with Pelican Bomb in New Orleans to apply the same framework to a dual-city residency program, arts writers can participate in one-week stays in both Atlanta and New Orleans.
We are not currently accepting applications for our Critic-in-Residence program. The next anticipated call for applicants will be Summer of 2015. Please check back then, or sign up for our email list to stay up to date on BURNAWAY news and be notified when we open that application process.
