What We Do

The Alliance gives a collective voice on behalf of its members, small and large, that leverages support for the field as a whole; promotes successful practices in the field; and advocates for creative environments that support the work of today's artists.

We advocate:

  • on behalf of the field of artists' residencies and creative environments in general, to funders, policymakers, researchers, and the public

We provide:

  • a forum on support for today's artists 
  • professional development opportunities to the field 
  • research and benchmarking data 
  • funding partnerships — bringing new financial resources to the field 

We connect:

  • our members to each other through networking opportunities 
  • artists, students, and others to information on artists' residencies
  • the field to other professionals in the arts, sciences and beyond
