Emerging Program Institute
This 2-day bootcamp was designed for individuals developing or re-assessing residency programs and combines best practices from the nonprofit arts sector with specific, hands-on information about artists' residencies. Emerging Program Institutes are a time to connect with leaders from throughout the field, visit innovative residency programs and gather resources on best practices. If you are interested in or involved in launching a new residency program, you won't want to miss this annual training!
The annual conference brings together more than 250 residency leaders, artists, funders, policy-makers, board members and educators from around the country and across the globe for three days of conversation, collaboration and celebration.
