CECArtsLink Residencies


Application Deadline: October 15th 2015

CECArtsLink 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.

For the 2015 Residencies program, Fellows will be artists and arts managers working in performing arts and literature. Artists and arts managers working in visual and media arts may apply in October 2015 for the 2016 Residencies program.
