Artist residencies place council-approved artists or ensembles with host/sponsors for a minimum of 10 days for an individual artist or five days for a company or ensemble.

Residency projects must be developed collaboratively. The application must be signed by both the host organization and the artist(s) who will take part in the residency. While potential applicants are strongly encouraged to apply for residency funding through AIE Partners, applicants may apply directly for AIE residency funding.
