Virginia Center for the Creative Arts Residency / Deadline: May 15

The Virginia Center for the Creative Arts (VCCA) provides time and space for national and international writers, visual artists, and composers of talent and promise to bring forth their finest works, because the arts are vital, diversity is a strength, and creativity is essential.

Selected artists come to VCCA’s Mt. San Angelo in Amherst, Virginia or the Moulin à Nef in Auvillar, France for intense periods of creative work, free from the distractions of day-to-day life. During residencies lasting anywhere from two weeks to two months, VCCA Fellows enjoy private studios, private bedrooms, and meals. Whether sequestered in the rolling foothills of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains or on the banks of the Garonne River in Southwest France, VCCA Fellows can work in concentrated solitude, then re-energize in the company of other artists.

VCCA Fellows are selected by peer review on the basis of professional achievement or promise of achievement in their respective fields. Panelists for each discipline and genre undergo periodic review and rotate regularly to ensure that selection to VCCA is being made by high caliber artists who represent a diversity of styles and tastes.
