ArtsLink Residencies offers artists and arts managers from eligible overseas countries a five-week residency at an established, non-profit arts organization in the US. The program is designed to create opportunities for artists and communities across the US to share artistic practices with artists and arts managers from abroad and engage in dialogue that advances understanding across cultures.

Host organizations are selected based on an application process open to US non-profit organizations from all fifty US states. Applicants do not need to have contacts with organizations in the US to apply for this program.

Performing artists and writers may apply in October 2016 for the 2017 Residencies program.

ArtsLink Residencies allows artists and arts managers from eligible countries to:

  • Pursue artistic and/or professional collaborations that will enrich and enhance their work
  • Share ideas and expertise with US artists and organizations, with residents of the broader host community, and with colleagues from the region who participate in the program
  • Expand knowledge of arts practice and deepen understanding of cultural life in the US
  • Create new work that draws inspiration from interaction with artists and arts professionals within the US host community
  • Expand professional arts management skills through work with US organizations

The different components of ArtsLink Awards are funded with major support from the National Endowment for the Arts and by the Trust for Mutual Understanding, The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the Ohio Arts Council, the Kettering Fund, the Milton and Sally Avery Arts Foundation and the individual supporters of CEC ArtsLink, with additional support from the Romanian Cultural Institute and the Polish Cultural Institute.
