Question: What is an artist residency?

Answer: a think tank for artists.

The luxury of time, a rare commodity in this over-scheduled world can allow for new ideas and experimentation for artists. How many times have you experienced an artform and wondered, ‘How did the artist come up with that idea?’

The blank canvas, or screen for the writers and musicians can sometimes be daunting. The time to consider, think, and play can be used to create some extraordinary new work. Artist residencies allow for that concentrated time and energy.
