artist residency resources

I’ve compiled a few resources for artists looking for residency opportunities. Here are a few sites that support artists and specifically list interesting residency opportunities as part of their service to artists:


Creative Capital

Every couple of months, Creative Capital send out a newsletter with upcoming grant and residency opportunities. They also publish occasional articles to provide advice on making applications and other useful information for artists.



Welcome to the home of Artist Residencies

We are an association of over 400 centers and organisations in over 70 countries. Our members are dedicated to offering artists, curators, and all manner of creative people a time and place away from their every-day life, an experience framed within a unique geographic and cultural context.

Alliance of Artists Communities

The Alliance of Artists Communities is an international association of artists’ residencies — a diverse field of more than 1,500 programs worldwide that support artists of any discipline in the development of new creative work.

Believing that the cultivation of new art and ideas is essential to human progress, the Alliance’s mission is to advocate for and support artists’ communities, to advance the endeavors of artists.

On The Move

On the Move (OTM) is a cultural mobility information network with more than 35 members in over 20 countries across Europe and beyond. Our mission is to encourage and facilitate cross-border mobility and cooperation, contributing to building up a vibrant and shared European cultural space that is strongly connected worldwide.

Residency Unlimited – opportunities

Residency Unlimited (RU) supports the creation, presentation and dissemination of contemporary art through its unique residency program and year-round public programs. We forge strategic partnerships with collaborating institutions to offer customized residencies designed to meet the individual needs of participating artists and curators. They also provide a free listing service delivering up-to-date information about artist residencies worldwide.
