Call for Artists: 2023 Young Artist Residency
March 10 - April 11
In 2022, Bethany Arts Community identified the need and opportunity to support a longer-term residency specifically for emerging artists from 21-30 years old. In 2023, BAC welcomes their second annual Young Artist Residency, running from July 24 to October 20, 2023.
This residency is designed to offer a creative home to promising artists as they transition and deepen their professional careers and artistic practice. With provided support from BAC, Young Artist Residents will be able to devote uninhibited energy towards creativity.
Young Artist Residents will be in a community of artists and culture workers from a broad range of disciplines, including our Fall Multidisciplinary residents, local studio artists, BAC staff and board members, those presenting programs on campus and more! In addition, YA Residents will be invited to participate in education and enrichment programs, curatorial planning, and peek into the “back-end” of art institutions.
Bethany Arts Community strives to empower the voices of emerging artists in shaping their own careers and future programs at BAC and beyond.
The Young Artist Residency runs for thirteen weeks, July 24 to October 20. Artists are provided room & board, a private studio, and a $250 stipend per week. Meals will only be provided during other residency programs, approximately 5 weeks of the Young Artist Residency. Artist is responsible for transportation to and from BAC.
