BRECKENRIDGE CREATIVE ARTS
BRECKENRIDGE, CO. USA
BCA’s artist-in-residence program offers regional, national, and international artists of all disciplines an opportunity to focus on process rather than product while engaging with the local community in a meaningful way.
Visiting artists live and work for three to four months in the Breckenridge Arts District, an intimate campus of historic structures nestled under majestic snow-capped peaks in cozy downtown Breckenridge. During their live/work residency, artists explore a place-based thematic narrative—whether that means interpreting our spectacular mountain setting, rich local history, or risk-taking spirit; or focusing on an environmental or social topic important to the community. Artists are offered a weekly stipend of $200 to cover food and other expenses. Paid teaching opportunities are available with BCA approval.
Artist expectations include: facilitating two weekly open studios (on campus), instructing one weekly workshop, participating in monthly Second Saturdays, and planning and hosting a final presentation or event produced in collaboration with a local partner. Artists with teaching experience will be favored. BCA offers classes in the following mediums: ceramics, metalsmithing, glassblowing, welding, printmaking, sewing/textiles, painting, woodworking, mountain crafts + skills, kids workshops, mixed media. Only artists with a website or social media platform will be considered.

BRATTLEBORO MUSEUM: CLIMATE CHANGE ARTIST RESIDENCY
BRATTLEBORO, VT. USA
In response to the ongoing climate crisis, BMAC has created an artist residency program to support artists seeking time and resources to engage with the profound questions and challenges presented by climate change. We believe that artists have a unique and vital role to play in responding to the climate crisis. Through their work, artists can foster personal and emotional connection to the issue, encourage empathy and collaboration, imagine new futures, and in so doing help effect positive change.
The 2022 BMAC Climate Change Artists in Residence are Elizabeth Billings, Evie Lovett, and Andrea Wasserman. Through their creative placemaking collaborative, Ask the River, Billings, Lovett, and Wasserman have worked together in the Brattleboro area since 2016, reconnecting our community with its natural surroundings through art. Each of the three artists is using the BMAC Climate Change Artist Residency to deepen their individual practices and their relationships with the environment through writing, research, activism, and art making.
Learn more about their work on our blog, Art Loves Company.
About the Residency
BMAC awards one Climate Change Artist Residency per year to an individual or group. The residency comes with a $6,000 stipend. The nature of the residency is flexible and will be designed based on the artist-in-residence’s needs and the resources BMAC is able to provide. Our aim is to meet the recipient(s) where they are and to provide meaningful support for their work in whatever ways we can. That may or may not include providing accommodations in Vermont or elsewhere, developing exhibitions or other public-facing activities, or fostering connections with other artists, curators, scientists, educators, and activists tackling climate change.
