[WORKSHOP / CALL] 2013 Master Artists-in-Residence Schedule at Atlantic Center for the Arts

at Atlantic Center for the Arts
Since 1982, Atlantic Center’s residency program has provided artists from all artistic disciplines with spaces to live, work, and collaborate during three-week residencies. Located just five miles from the east coast beaches of central Florida, the pine and palmetto wooded environment contains six award-winning studios that include a resource library, painting studio, sculpture studio, music studio, dance studio, black box theater, writer’s studio, and digital media studio. Each residency session includes three master artists of different disciplines. The master artists personally select a group of associates—talented, emerging, midcareer artists—through an application process administered by ACA. During the residency, artists participate in formal sessions with their group, collaborate on projects, and work independently. The relaxed atmosphere and unstructured program provide considerable time for artistic regeneration and creation.
Financial assistance to attend residencies are available for painters and sculptors (through The Joan Mitchell Foundation) and for composers (through The Sally Mead Hands Foundation) for accepted artists who submit ACA Financial Aid forms upon acceptance. Also, limited financial assistance is available for writers and other disciplines (excluding the your word program) through The Pabst Charitable Foundation for the Arts and Atlantic Center for the Arts Advance an Artist Program.
