About the Lanesboro Artist Residency Program:
Lanesboro Arts invites Black, Indigenous, Persons of Color (BIPOC) artists in Minnesota to apply for the Lanesboro Arts BIPOC Artist Residency Program. This personally tailored residency program offers the opportunity for support and open access to Lanesboro Arts and Lanesboro Area, facilities, personnel, and natural environment. This is the first public round of this residency program; there was a pilot residency program with BIPOC artists that wrapped up in February 2023. Feedback from the pilot round of the residency program as well as from the BIPOC Advisory Committee directly informed this residency.
Applications for this program are due by 11:59 pm on Sunday, October 1st, 2023. The application is now open. For more information, visit this page.
This program is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Creative Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
