Resident Residency

McColl Center for Art + Innovation’s Resident Residency is an artist residency for four Charlotte-based artists who are addressing themes impacting their communities through social practice art. The intent of this residency is to build the creative practices, leadership, and power of artists in Charlotte by providing them with resources, time, and money to do so.

Each artist is awarded a six-week residency at McColl Center during the fall of 2019 starting around mid-October. Artists receive:

  • 24-hour access to a shared artist studio and all communal studios;
  • A $2,500 stipend for the residency, materials, and supplies;
  • Curatorial support and guidance;
  • Marketing support, including photo and social media documentation and digital training
  • Other support as needed or available

We invite Charlotte-based artists that are building power in their community to apply for the Resident Residency (application coming soon). The application period is open from September 16 to September 30. Artists will be selected and notified in early October. The artist residencies will begin in mid to late October.

The Resident Residency program is sponsored and funded by EmcArts’ New Pathways for Arts & Culture | Charlotte, a three-year program geared to strengthen a cohort of ten of Charlotte’s most distinctive cultural organizations by investing in adaptive change efforts and building adaptive capacity.
