Atlantic Center for the Arts

2009 Master Artists-in-Residence Program (Oct deadline)

Atlantic Center For the Arts residency programme

Atlantic Center for the Arts is an innovative nonprofit artists-in-residence community that provides artists with an opportunity to work and collaborate with some of the world's masters in the visual, literary, and performing arts. Atlantic Center is situated on a lush 69-acre ecological preserve surrounded by protected wetlands in Florida, USA. The residency program brings together three Master Artists from different artistic disciplines, such as the visual arts (painting, sculpture, photography, film/video), architecture, music (composition and performance), literature, modern dance, performance art, and theater for interdisciplinary dialogue. Master Artists may accept up to ten midcareer artists who engage in this cross genre exchange. The program includes master classes, individual critiques, opportunities for collaboration, and private studio time. It is an ideal setting for the exchange of ideas, the inspiration for new work, and the cross-fertilization of disciplines. The residencies last 3 weeks, and there are several deadlines a year, all international applications must arrive at ACA within 7 days of the deadline date posted.
