Bethany welcomes artists working across most disciplines, including visual artists in any medium, writers, playwrights, choreographers, musicians, composers, performance artists, filmmakers, and lighting, projection, costume and sound designers. Enjoy an environment where artists from different disciplines can work near each other, creating opportunities for cross-pollination.

Artists may apply for residencies of 1-4 weeks during the Fall session : September 15 - October 26
Application DEADLINE: APRIL 30, 2019
Notifications: MAY 15, 2019

Successful applicants are typically mid-career or established artists. However, emerging artists who believe their work is of exceptional merit are eligible as well. We accept applications from individual artists and small groups of up to 4 members.

Bethany residencies come with two important requirements:
(1) All residents must attend shared evening meals with their fellow artists.
(2) All residencies must include a public component accessible to the outside community. This may include open studio visits, presentations, teaching a class/workshop, works-in-progress showing, exhibition, or other outreach or community engagement project. Bethany will work with you to schedule and craft your public component.
You must be at least 21 years old to apply. You may only apply to one subsidized residency program at BAC per year.

Applications are reviewed by a panel of staff and working artists.
All of BAC’s programs, activities, and services are provided equally without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity or disability.

Bethany Arts Community consists of a 44,000 sq ft building situated on 25 verdant acres with both sprawling lawns, orchard, and wooded trails. The wooded trail includes numerous outdoor spaces suitable for developing works, presentation, or installations. The building includes dance studios, galleries, a former-chapel performance venue, and numerous nooks and crannies waiting to be activated by you!

Artists receive:
- comfortable housing in single dorms on BAC’s top floor (groups may be housed in dorms or shared apartments)
- 3 meals/day;
- assigned studio spaces, if desired;
- access to BAC’s varied facilities;
- stipend of $150 per week per artist.

Residents will be responsible for the cost of travel, materials, and any additional labor needs.

Artists are also encouraged to consider ways to work in and with BAC’s expansive grounds and our diverse local community. Bethany is proud to be in a Town where over half the population are people of color and recent immigrants.
