Artist Resident Program

The Ellis-Beauregard Foundation recognizes that the arts are essential to an open, enlightened society. The residency program values innovation, experimentation and creative risk-taking in all genres, known and as yet to be discovered. We envision the residency as inclusive and diverse, prompting reflection and dialogue with other residents and the community, offering the gift of concentrated time and space in which to unveil new ideas and imagine new ways of working. Residents are expected to be full time active cohort participants. Please apply with that intent. However, if an important opportunity conflicts with your time in residence, we will try to come to an equitable solution.

The Ellis-Beauregard Foundation, located on the coast of Maine in Rockland, will provide four light filled studios for residencies at Lincoln Street Center, a repurposed school in the heart of Rockland, and a stipend of $1200.00 a month per resident. Sleeping area in studio is provided. Interested artists may submit applications to the Foundation by visiting our website, Ellis-Beauregard Foundation no later than midnight, November 15, 2022  to Submittable.
