Surviving to Thriving: Sustaining Artist Residencies

Surviving to Thriving: Sustaining Artist Residencies

Over 2010-2011, the Alliance of Artists Communities set out to explore the question, "What is organizational sustainability, and how might it apply to artist residencies?". The resulting report is available for download!

"Surviving to Thriving: Sustaining Artist Residencies" features information and examples from 157 organizations on funding, personnel, governance, programming, property, environment, and priorities. "Surviving to Thriving" also includes case studies of four very different artist residency centers – 18th Street Arts Center (Santa Monica, CA), Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts (Omaha, NE), Escape to Create (Seaside, FL), and Hedgebrook (Whidbey Island, WA).
