Resource Spotlight: Artist Communities Alliance Directory

Artist Communities Alliance (ACA) is a platform to connect the people who power the artist residency field: administrators, artists, culture bearers, funders, neighbors, and volunteers.

The ACA Directory is a tool and platform to discover and celebrate the varied diversity, typology, and context in which artist support programs exist. It is a space for residency programs and organizations to provide transparency about their policies and processes. It is a site for artists, arts administrators and other creatives to find opportunities.

The Directory is divided into four sections: Organizations, Residency Programs, Open Calls, and Jobs.
