Regional Emerging Artists in Residence
The Regional Emerging Artist Residency provides emerging, Southeastern-based artists with six months of free studio space at Artspace, giving them time and space to explore their work in a supportive and thriving open studio environment. Artspace offers two residencies every six months.
Summer Artist Residency
The Summer Artist Residency provides an established artist with a month-long studio opportunity to work on a specific project in Artspace’s Gallery 1 during the summer, culminating in an exhibition at the end of the month.
Pop In Artist Residency
The Pop In residency program focuses on community engagement and provides an artist with a month-long studio opportunity to work on a project of their choice. During the residency period, Pop In Artists engage with the Raleigh community through a collaborative project or through teaching a workshop.
Universal Access Artist Residency
The Universal Access Residency is exclusive to artists who identify as having a disability. This residency is designed to be flexible and can be easily modified to accommodate different disabilities.
The residency was initiated in 2019 and was made possible through the actions of past Operations + Finance Manager, Megan Sullivan, who received The Betty Siegel Universal Access + the Arts Award; which recognizes the substantial achievements of Arts Learning Community for Universal Access members who complete all three years of the program. Sullivan chose to use the grant included as part of the award to fill a need in our community.
