Artists often need time, free and clear of day-to-day obligations, to take risks, make work (or just stand back to think about making work), and experiment in their practice. 3Arts Residency Fellowships are designed to help artists have some space to test their mettle, see what happens, and take a breath.
A National Network of 3Arts Fellowships
Past 3Arts awardees and residency fellows are eligible to apply for month-long residencies with $2,000 stipends and airfare in a national network of accessible artist communities, through a program managed by the Alliance of Artists Communities. These residencies are open to artists in dance, music, teaching arts, theater, and visual arts in all of their permutations.
Four fellowships are available annually through the following residency partners:

3Arts Fellowships at Ragdale Foundation
3Arts has also established Residency Fellowships through a long-term alliance with the Ragdale Foundation to support residencies for women artists, artists of color, and artists with disabilities in the performing, teaching, and visual arts in the Chicago area. Artists receive two-week residencies with $1,000 stipends at Ragdale, situated 30 miles north of Chicago in Lake Forest, Illinois, in a protected prairie setting.
Artists are selected through a nomination and jury process overseen by Ragdale. No unsolicited applications are accepted.
