Atlantic Center for the Arts Master Artist Residency
Location: New Smyrna Beach, FL
The Master Artist 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. Please visit About the Master Artists-in-Residence Program to learn more.
Deadline: September 16
