Artist Residency Grants


Residencies are an increasingly important component of the professional advancement of artists, offering opportunities to create new work, learn new skills, meet peers and forge professional connections. Artis provides financial support and professional development resources for artists from Israel who have been accepted to top residency programs around the world.

Residency Grants further our history of direct support for artists, including: professional development workshops, and project grants for artists in Israel, prior residency grants, and scholarships at Columbia University’s MFA program. After more than a decade of successfully supporting artists through these programs, and through careful evaluation and assessment, we determined that what many artists need now is the opportunity to build on their successes, advance their careers, and learn from their international peers through the unique structures and programs that international residencies provide.
