Nuts and Bolts – Artist Residencies: Delving into Possibilities

May 15 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm CDT


Panel: Lauren Cross, Letitia Huckaby, Laura Tabbut, Justin Sorensen

The Nuts and Bolts webinar is formatted as a 50-minute panel discussion with an opportunity for Q&A at the end. 


This time is meant to be an honest and transparent sharing of experiences, opinions, advice for those who are struggling with making a decision to pursue residencies or not. We will delve into questions such as:

  • Difference between types of residencies?

  • How to distinguish the quality of an artist residency?

  • What are the benefits of communal vs independent residencies?

  • Lengths of residencies? Family-friendly? 

  • Expected costs associated?

  • Where do I find residencies and how do I apply?

  • Do all residencies require physical results? In what way? Or do some simply offer the “gift of time” to process?

  • Red flags to watch out for when choosing a residency?

Asking the honest questions: “Who and what are residencies for?” “What are some good quality residencies?” and that elephant-in-the-room question of “When is the word ‘residency’ just marketing jargon for a retreat or tour company?”
