Art residencies. Say what? It's a place for artist's to temporarily live so they can have uninterrupted time to create art. Some residencies offer free room and board and materials plus equipment to borrow. They're not just for visual artists but dancers, writers, composers... And there are residencies all over the world!!
I am starting to apply. The requirements are all different: number of images of resent art work, artist's statement, bio, letters of reference, proposal for what Iwant to create while there.
