What is a Centrum Artist Residency?

in 1980, Centrum’s artist residency program aims to create an environment where
ideas, music, writing, art and more can be developed, and eventually

Centrum residencies are about time and space. With both, you’ll have the opportunity to grow as an artist or creative thinker.

Our residencies are open to artists, thinkers, activists,
performers —anyone involved in creative endeavors. A residency may
involve either the solitary creative work of an individual or the
interactive work of a group. It can focus on a single genre or be
multidisciplinary. A residency may involve active engagement with other
Centrum programs, artists, and communities, or it may serve as a
reflective retreat.

Residencies are awarded on a space-available basis, in week-long blocks
(Friday-Friday). Residencies are available as space exists in Centrum
facilities–generally January through June, and August through
December. Some resources are available year-round.
