Alliance of Artist Communities

The Alliance of Artist Communities is the service organization for the field of artist communities and residencies.  Believing that the cultivation of new art and ideas is essential to human progress, the Alliance's mission is to advocate for and support artist communities, in order to advance the endeavors of artists.  The Alliance is one of the few national organizations representing programs that support artists in all disciplines, believing that collaboration and exchange that cross traditional boundaries furthers our culture's progress.   It includes more than 250 members – a diverse field of artist communities, residency programs, individuals, and institutions that support living artists in the creation of new work.  For more information on the Alliance, visit
