Virginia Center for the Creative Arts Residency
Apply now for the opportunity to become a Creative Fellow
The Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, through its Creative Fellowships program, annually supports residencies for writers, composers, and visual artists at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. The visiting artist is provided with a private studio, room and board, and the company of other artists from around the nation, for an intensive period of self-guided creative exploration and development. In addition to sponsorship support, a modest travel subsidy is awarded to the selected artist.Interested artists in Delaware, Maryland, New York, and West Virginia should apply directly to the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. For residencies occurring in the 2017 calendar year, support is still available for artists from Delaware and West Virginia. Artists interested in being considered should apply directly to the colony. More information is available here.
The next deadline for applications is May 15, 2017.
Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation also provides support for residencies at the Millay Colony for the Arts through its Creative Fellowships program for artists residing in the District of Columbia, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
