The residency fee is automatically split into two payments. Upon request, we are happy to work with residents to create an alternative payment plan of up to 4 payments due by September, if needed. Please note that the first installment of the residency fee is non-refundable, as we may not be able to fill a vacancy with short notice. Residency fees can be paid using check or through online payment services Venmo, PayPal, and Stripe. Once accepted you will receive details on how to make payment.

Fees subject to change from year to year.

ACRE fundraises throughout the year in order to offer the residency program at a low cost to artists. It costs approximately $1,500 per resident to operate the residency program alone, which does not include the exhibitions program or other activities. Additionally, at this time all residency staff members are volunteer, receiving a small stipend.
