Artist Residency Grant Program Open Call


Residencies can be an important component of artistic process, offering opportunities to create new work, learn new skills, meet peers, and forge professional connections. Recognizing this, Artis provides support for artists and curators from Israel who have been accepted at major international residency programs. Residency grants are provided directly to the successful applicant in support of travel, program fees, production costs, or other needs associated with the residency. Given COVID-19 pandemic-related travel regulations, Artis now welcomes applications for residencies that are held in-person or virtually. 

Guidelines and Eligibility Requirements

Residency grants are awarded to visual artists and curators from Israel who have been accepted to an artist residency program outside of Israel. The grants, up to $5,000, may be used to cover any costs associated with a residency, including but not limited to fees, travel, living expenses, and supplies. Residencies may take place in person or be held virtually. In their application, applicants should explain how the program will be executed, and share plans to follow travel advisories and safety protocol set in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If the residency is held virtually, applicants should explain how they plan to work on projects, as well as related programming and professional development opportunities, during the residency. Please read the residency grants Frequently Asked Questions for a complete list of eligibility requirements and information on how to apply.
