BAC's Artist Residency Program supports artists by providing space for creative investigation. Each year, BAC hosts up to 20 artists in residence to develop ideas, projects, and collaborations. Support can include three weeks of free studio time, honoraria, technical and administrative services, advocacy, and work-in-progress showings.
BAC residencies are a pressure-free environment for artists, who are encouraged to focus on their current priorities without the expectation of delivering a finished product. However, works created here often go on to premiere at venues around the world—including BAC’s own stages.
BAC residencies are offered by invitation to artists; there is no formal application process or deadline. Please note that because of the high volume of projects under consideration, unsolicited submissions may not receive a response.
