3Arts Residencies provide artists with uninterrupted time and space to focus on their creative processes within environments and communities that are both restorative and stimulating.
In partnership with the Artist Communities Alliance, we offer all-expenses-paid residencies, plus $2,000 stipends and airfare, to artists in our network who want a creative sojourn out of town. Our residency opportunities are accessible and open to artists in dance, music, teaching arts, theater, and visual arts. For Deaf and disabled artists, 3Arts supports travel and housing for personal assistants.
In partnership with Bodies of Work, 3Arts provides local residencies on an invitational basis for Deaf and disabled artists to support the creation of new work, professional development, and advocacy for Disability Art & Culture.
