The Impact of Artist Residencies | Bellagio Center

Alliance of Artists Communities




Bellagio Center | Evaluation Tools

The Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center, through conferences and residency programs, supports the work of scholars, artists, thought leaders, policymakers, and practitioners who share in the Foundation's pioneering mission to "promote the well-being of humanity." The Center has a record of major impact, from meetings that led to the Green Revolution and the Global AIDS vaccine initiative, to residencies that furthered the work of Glenn Ligon. This legacy, the serene work environment on the shore of Lake Como in northern Italy, the diverse groups of people, and the promise of future achievements make Bellagio an inspiring and productive forum for fostering positive change.

While most residency programs conduct an exit survey or interview, The Rockefeller Foundation has developed additional 1-year and 3-year evaluations to better understand the impact of a residency over time. Below are links to each of the surveys for Bellagio residents, as an example of how residency programs might assess long-term impact.

In addition, The Foundation published a book commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Bellagio Center in 2009, which serves as a document on the impact of the residency programs and conferences at Bellagio over a half-century.
