Artspacenc Universal Artist in Residence

Artspacenc Universal Artist in Residence

Initiated in 2018, the Universal Access Artist Residency is for artists who identify as having a disability. This month-long residency provides funding, studio space and professional support for an artist to produce a solo exhibition immediately following the residency at Artspace. During the residency the artist works in the gallery where the work will be exhibited.
Residents can actively contribute to Artspace’s artistic and educational programming by participating in First Friday, Raleigh’s monthly art walk; being available for studio visits and tours; and working in their studios during Artspace’s business hours. While this contribution is encouraged, the main goal of this residency is to provide the resident with the space and opportunity to devote themselves to their creative practice.
