We offer short-term residencies (3, 6, or 12 months), and long-term (project-defined) residencies for really big ideas.
Our artists in residence are provided workspace, fiscal sponsorship, project mentoring, and help connecting to continuing education, communities, and professional opportunities.
We partner with exceptional programs like Periscope, Nashville Sideshow Fringe Fest, and Leadership Nashville. Our artists often go on to exhibit and present their work throughout Nashville, and well beyond.
