Location: South End, Boston, Massachusetts

Mission: The Boston Center for the Arts (BCA) is accepting applications for the Artist Residency Program. The program aims to provide an environment where artists can experiment with their craft, develop their focus or test new ideas and simultaneously engage in public dialogue in a way that is considerate to the artistโ€™s time and process. This fifteen week, process oriented residency is awarded to two individual artists per year (no groups or collaborative pairs). Through a series of community programs jointly developed by the artist and the BCA, it allows artists to connect to the public and explore themes that inform their residency project.

International artists are invited to apply; however, all artists are responsible for their own visa, travel, living and housing expenses. With the BCAโ€™s commitment to local artists, at least one resident will be an individual based in Massachusetts.
