In this, our second in a new series of posts exploring some of the many opportunities available to artists of all levels of experience, we bring you some choice precipices from which you may choose to launch your next step. Whether or not you win is beside the point, simply applying and making the process part of your regular practice is a huge step toward running a well-rounded art career. Odds are you will apply to many residencies, grants, and other opportunities before being accepted and this is absolutely normal.
