The Alliance of Artists Communities is an international association of artists’ residency programs – organizations that provide artists of any discipline (visual arts, writing, music composition, dance/choreography, architecture, filmmaking, etc.) with dedicated time and space for the development of new work. These residency centers serve as research-and-development labs for the arts, providing critical support for the generation of new art and ideas that are essential to human progress. There are 500 such programs in the U.S. and more than 1,500 worldwide.
On their site you will find a FREE directory of residencies and members; a list of services such as workshops and panel discussions and a detailed event list of the conference events in KC. Some of these events, between October 30 and November 2, will be open to the public, this gives KCAI artists a great chance to network with other artist, educators, funders and policy-makers. Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity!!!
