Ever moving forward – that is the artist’s way. To be still is to stagnate in the art world, a place in a constant state of evolution with new ideas, new individuals and new materials emerging every hour of every day. A successful artist is one who understands this and is willing to commit to the hard work and constant diligence it takes to keep up with the flow. One of the best ways to do this is to seek out opportunities that will help you advance professionally, personally and artistically. Here are a few to get you started.
Virginia Center for the Creative Arts invites artists to apply for residency. Selection is done by peer review and residencies take place during the period between January and April of 2023. There will be fully funded opportunities available. For more information and to apply, visit the website. Deadline for submissions is May 15.
Marble House Project is accepting applications for 2023 residency periods. This multidisciplinary artist residency program is intended to foster collaboration and exchange of ideas. Artists from across different disciplines live and work together at a residency that integrates sustainable practices such as small-scale organic food production.

Creative Time invites artists to apply to a program that believes in supporting artists to dream without bounds.
