Since 1982, Atlantic Center’s residency program has provided artists from all artistic disciplines with spaces to live, work, and collaborate during three-week residencies. Located just four miles from the east coast beaches of central Florida, the pine and palmetto wooded environment contains award-winning studios that include a resource library, painting, sculpture, music, dance and writers’ studios, a black box theater, and digital computer lab. Each residency session includes three master artists of different disciplines. The master artists each personally select a group of associates – talented, emerging and midcareer artists – through an application process administered by ACA. During the residency, artists participate in informal sessions with their group, collaborate on projects, and work independently. The relaxed atmosphere and unstructured program provide considerable time for artistic regeneration and creation. Atlantic Center for the Arts provides housing (private room/bath with work desk), weekday meals (provided by ACA chef) and 24-hour access to shared studio space. Financial Aid is available to qualified applicants.

For more information on how to apply, please visit www.atlanticcenterforthearts.org, or email program@atlanticcenterforthearts.org or telephone ACA at (386) 427-6975 or (800) 393-6975 (domestic US only).

___________________________________________

“Close your eyes and imagine being in a tropical verdant jungle, birds sing, the sun shines and the idea of the inner city seems remote, distant. You are in this jungle with a group of people you have never met before and upon arrival you discover that you have everything in common, shared artistic and intellectual concerns, and sense of humor. Your meals are provided and shared, you have an equipped studio, a private room to sleep and bathe and three weeks to deeply engage in the process of making new work, stimulated by your peers and without distraction. Paradise, that’s ACA…”
Paulette Phillips
Associate Artist-in-Residence, October 2009
