"Artist Residencies: Where to find them, what to get out of them" — Nov. 8 at 7 pm: Artist residencies offer many different styles and models of support that provide artists of all disciplines with dedicated time and space for their creative work. Some are active centers for public programming and artistic community, and others offer solitude and retreat.
Our speakers will share their experiences and perspectives from an emerging artist, an established artist and a residency director on the art of finding a residency program. The panel will provide an in-depth cross section of the benefits and impacts of artist residencies and address preparedness, finding the right fit and how to get the most out of the experience. RSVP to email@example.com.
The Professional Development Speaker Series is a succession of lectures and workshops given by established artists and art professionals to aid in the artistic and entrepreneurial development of all Hamiltonian Fellows and other emerging artists. All talks begin promptly at 7pm and take place at Hamiltonian Gallery, 1353 U Street, NW Washington, DC 20009.
