Hosting an ArtsPath Residency

Carl Rahkonnen working with music students

A residency may be initiated by the artist, a teacher, a community organization, or other party.

Once approved, and in order to receive PCA/ArtsPath funding for an artist residency, the host coordinator must complete the application form in full collaboration with the AIE Directory artist. Decisions on funding will be determined no later than August 15 and are pending final budget allocations from the PCA. Applications received after May 15 will be reviewed with decisions made within four weeks from receipt, pending availability of funds and on a first-come, first-served basis, provided all qualifications are met.


Prior to submitting the application, you must secure your portion of the funding in accordance with the funding guidleines. The host site is responsible for providing any necessary supplies required for the residency, with some flexibility for partial funding from ArtsPath and as outlined in the guidelines. If the application is approved and a plan is developed, the host site may apply to ArtsPath for available funding, with ArtsPath/PCA covering a portion of the artist-related fees and all of the residency-related administrative fees.

Elements of an Artist Residency
The residency design—planned by the artist and host teacher—must give students an in-depth experience in the artist’s discipline, which includes a significant commitment from both the artist and coordinators involved on each day of the residency.
