Artists’ Community Administrator Residency | Rauschenberg Residency

"We look forward to introducing our peers to the Rauschenberg Residency, which is infused with a unique history, beauty and serenity."

The Rauschenberg Residency has announced a session this coming fall specifically for artist residency administrators! The Artists’ Community Administrator Residency is designed to provide creative time and space for practicing artists of all disciplines who also have a full-time position at an Alliance member residency. "The seed has been germinating for years, as the impetus to provide support for those who do what we do is one that profoundly resonates," wrote Ann Brady, Director of the Rauschenberg Residency. "The 2017 Alliance of Artists Communities' Conference session, Wanderlust & Retaining Staff spurred us to take action, and an unforeseen opening in our 2018 calendar made it possible."

The Artists’ Community Administrator Residency is designed to provide creative time and space for ten artists of all disciplines who also have a staff position at an artists’ community. The program is open to any full-time staff member who has been employed for at least one year by an Alliance of Artists Communities member organization.

The program will run from September 30 – October 14, 2018. Applicants must commit to attending for the full two weeks, as well as receive full support from their employer. The Rauschenberg Residency will provide housing, meals, studio/equipment usage, and staff resources. 

The deadline to apply is May 1, 2018.

About the Rauschenberg Residency

The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation launched the Rauschenberg Residency in 2012 when it converted Bob’s former home in Captiva, Florida – where he lived and worked for 40 years – into a multidisciplinary artists’ community inspired by Bob’s years at Black Mountain College. 

The 20-acre site that stretches from beach to bay stimulates cross-disciplinary collaborations, as well as engenders a focus on the conservation of a sensitive and pristine environment. The Rauschenberg Residency advances new bodies of work, extends practices into new mediums, and serves as a research and development lab for individual and group projects.
