2013 January Res Artis Newsletter

2013: Res Artis’s 20th anniversary year!

What a great time to join our network!

2013 is going to be a great year for Res Artis. As we celebrate our 20th anniversary, we are dedicated to continuing to working on achieving our mission, vision, and values as our focus will be mainly put on:

Our meetings – what could be better than to spend time with organizers of other residencies? We believe this is the best way to learn from each other about the current state of the field, compare programs, and share your successes, failures, and strategies on how to address the ever-changing world of art residencies. Becoming a Res Artis member is an excellent way to meet future project partners, funders, and friends.

Our projects – the ResSupport training and support program for emerging artist-residencies has brought excellent results for our Members. Also, the ResSupport Fellowship is a great opportunity for an emerging Res Artis member organization to experience a residency period with an established organization, which had 3 successful experiences and we are looking for more opportunities.

Our website – If you are not a member, you can join and gain visibility by creating a profile on one of the top sources for international information about artist residencies; your profile, upcoming deadlines and news will be available to the over 40,000 people who monthly visit our webpage, 39.000 Facebook Fans and our 24.000 Newsletter receivers on a monthly basis.
