Each Master Artist determines the requirements and basic structure of their residency, and through an online application process, they each select eight “Associate Artists” to participate in the three-week program.

It is an ideal setting for the exchange of ideas, the inspiration for new work, and the cross-fertilization of disciplines. The programs can include formal classes, discussions, individual meetings, individual and group critiques, collaboration, and studio time. The award-winning Leeper Studio Complex provides residents with resources such as a painting studio, sculpture studio, digital media studio, dance studio, music/recording studio, writers’ studio, black box theatre and library.

Location: Charlotte, NC
Since 1999, McColl Center has partnered annually with Carolinas HealthCare System (CHS) to support one artist-in-residence in a medical setting in order to explore how the arts can extend or enhance healthcare and healing. CHS artists-in-residence have worked in various areas of the healthcare system, facilitating opportunities for self-reflection and creative expression for patients and staff. Examples of past projects include: a portraiture project addressing the changing identities of ten women experiencing breast cancer and chemotherapy and confronting issues about beauty, femininity, and motherhood; and artist-led drawing and guided-meditation workshops at Levine Cancer Institute. McColl Center seeks project proposals from regional, national, and international artists for the Spring 2019 season. Artists may work in architecture, drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, film, video, new media, design, fiction and nonfiction writing, music, theatre, social practice, urban agriculture, or interdisciplinary practices. We look for artists who are engaged in research and investigation and who are interested in the healthcare system as both site and subject for their work. Successful proposals will clearly state how the project will advance the theme of healthcare and healing and actively engage CHS patients and/or staff.  Head here for more information.
