The world is full of opportunities if you know where to look. As an artists, the only thing truly holding you back is your own willingness to compete, to stick your neck out and take a risk. You will not win the first competition you enter. You will not be selected for the first residency you apply to. But eventually you will begin to see that persistence pays off. The right opportunity for you will come along and you will be ready for it. Below are a handful of programs currently accepting submissions, perhaps one of them is just right for you.
