THE KANSAS CITY INTERNATIONAL RESIDENCY AT THE ARTISTS COALITION

GOALS – To provide artists with a supportive environment, time, and a large studio space to create art that others in the Kansas City community will be able to view and/or learn from; to enrich the resident artists’ experiences by encouraging travel and the importance of intercultural connections; to promote the value of exchanging ideas among art-producing peers.

CRITERIA – The program seeks applications from dedicated artists who create visual artwork (of any medium) of exceptional quality, and whose work and career are at a level to benefit from an international exchange with peers. The program is especially geared toward artists from abroad who have never before worked in the United States. This program will provide time and space for at least four weeks of residency (and up to three months of residency).

ELIGIBILITY – International visual artists will receive priority for the residency. USA based artists seeking a period of residency at the Kansas City International Artists Residency Program are also welcome to apply. Artists must be able to communicate in English.

ACCOMMODATIONS – Maximum 4 artists. Each resident will have a private room. There are two shared bathrooms, a shared kitchen and living room and a shared studio*.
