ABOUT

Arts residencies in Maine invite all kinds of creative people to work and share ideas in some of the most beautiful settings in America. Some residencies are part of large institutions, while others operate independently or with modest backing. There is no single model, and the expectations and requirements for various opportunities vary greatly. Sometimes residents become involved in a community – sometimes they are secluded, with time to focus on their individual practice in near isolation.


Residencies in Maine exist in urban spaces, rural environments, and natural settings. They offer artists time and space away from their regular routine so they can reflect, produce, and present. They also allow artists access to a new community; to meet new people, use new materials, and experience life in a different location. Please contact the Maine Arts Commission if you would like your Maine residency listed on this page.
