ARC: Artist Residency Chattanooga
Location: Chattanooga, TN
Artist Residency Chattanooga (ARC) functions as an arts incubator and offers professional development for artists from around the world, giving time and space to create new work in Chattanooga for one month. In exchange for having time to focus on new work and ideas, the artist is tasked with providing community outreach and education in the form of workshops, lectures, studio visits, and an exhibition.
We provide studio space, some tool/facility access, networking opportunities and local resources, in addition to a month long exhibition complete with opening reception events. We also provide press & documentation, as well as an opportunity for the artist’s story to be shared with the world after their stay in the form of a short documentary-style segment.
We have received a small local grant and will be able to pay for the artist’s lodging expenses for the month; most other expenses will be the responsibility of the artist.
Visit our website for more information about these opportunities as well as submission guidelines, previous artists, and other ARC news!

 5th Annual Short Shorts
Location: White Space Gallery, Atlanta
How do you decide something is truly art? You can say anything that encourages a lively discussion is art. Or anything that sells is art. Or it can be your own personal opinion. In the existential age, it is accepted that the individual – not society or religion – is solely responsible for giving meaning to life and living it passionately and “authentically.” These conclusions on truth and authenticity permeate every fiber of our culture, from advertising to intimacy, from politics to sense perception.
Whitespace Gallery calls for short short films (8 min or less) that address truth. Genres accepted include documentary, narrative or experimental. Some topics that might be addressed include constructive ambiguity, objectivity,  predictive histories, perception management, parallel space, brainwashing, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, fact-checking, self-confirming feedback loops, psychedelic consciousness, post-political governments, causality and correlation, managed outcomes, Bayesian belief networks, reframing the narrative, optics, non-linear warfare, shape shifting, hypernormalization, and simplify, revise, over-simplify. The show will be curated by filmmaker, Ruth Dusseault.
SUBMIT YOUR FILM: Film FreewayWithoutABox, and FestHome
DEADLINE: July 23rd

Atlantic Center for the Arts Master Artist Residency
Location: New Smyrna Beach, FL
The Master Artist Residency was the core program at our founding, and it has served over 3,500 emerging and mid-career artists from many disciplines. The residency is unique in that it is a mentoring program that couples prominent Master Artists with selected Associate Artists for three week periods. Since residencies are process based, and not product-driven, time can be spent on previously existing projects, on new experiments, or on collaborations. The residency is also unique in that it focuses on creating conversations and the sharing of ideas between three disciplines per program, which can include visual artists, writers, dancers, and musicians as well as many other types of art. ACA believes that the spirit and challenges of being an artist are shared by all disciplines and that we can learn much from coming together, sharing our work and ideas, and collaborating on projects.
