3Arts Residency Fellowships

3Arts Residency Fellowships provide our awardees with uninterrupted time and space to focus on their creative processes within environments and communities that are both restorative and stimulating. We partner with an international network of artist communities to offer all-expenses-paid fellowships that include $2,000 stipends and airfare. These out-of-town residencies are accessible and open to artists in dance, music, teaching arts, theater, and visual arts. For Deaf and disabled artists, 3Arts supports travel and housing for personal assistants.

3Arts also offers three-month, in-town Residency Fellowships at the University of Illinois at Chicago for artists with disabilities to create new work, engage audiences in programming, and increase public dialogue around disability arts, culture, and aesthetics.
