Invest in the strong collective voice of creative freedom. Support the Alliance!

For many artists, generosity takes shape in the form of a residency — places that inspire, nourish, and connect artists to a larger creative community. As the leading international advocacy organization for artist residencies, our network of 450+ members represent every US state and over 23 countries and provide direct support to tens of thousands of artists each year.

We are partnering with our members, funders, policy makers, and other arts organizations to herald equity in relation to leadership, selection processes, and public engagement. Our efforts were recently recognized with a generous grant from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts for our signature Diversity & Leadership Initiative, designed to support and retain administrators of color and administrators with disabilities.

Established and emerging residencies are deftly navigating how to meet the evolving needs of artists and how to build sustainable organizations. We are right there with them—connecting artists to opportunities, leveraging funding for the field, and collecting benchmarking data to assist residencies in making a case.

Give today and be part of sustaining the culture of generosity that is the cornerstone of our field.
