Artists in Residence
AIR Serenbe, the nonprofit artist residency program of the Serenbe Institute, invests in artists of all disciplines. We provide the time and space necessary for the development of new work, as well as focused public programming that brings audiences in close contact with creative processes and practices.
AIR (Artists in Residence) Serenbe is a unit of The Serenbe Institute. We seek to fuse art and cultural content to further The Serenbe Institute’s mission to explore, embrace, and expand the connection between nature, culture, and the art of living.
In 2016, Serenbe Development, Serenbe Institute, and AIR Serenbe collectively funded the completion of two RuralStudio Cottages for AIR Serenbe. These cottages have increased our capacity to provide more artists with functional and dedicated live/work space and develop them professionally and creatively. The success of these two Rural Studio Cottages has opened the door for the proposal to add up to four more live/work spaces in 2019 which would further increase capacity and expand AIR Serenbe’s ability to offer the time and space for artists to develop their work.
AIR Serenbe's core residency programs include Focus Fellowships and Project Residencies. Focus Fellowships, nominated by our National Advisory Council, award individual artists four weeks of residency and a stipend. Project Residencies provide a platform for us to partner with other arts and culture organizations to work on specific projects in Fulton County. We also host events like Speaking of Making artist talks, open studios, performances, workshops, and dinners that create opportunities of intersection for artists and the wider metro Atlanta community.
