Artists’ Residency

The Artists’ Residency program is an important part of our commitment to community cultural development. Professional artists create collaborative projects with community members through workshops, programs, discussions, rehearsals and productions. Residency projects are about building a creative community; they promote diversity, innovation, collaboration and involvement.

Moberly hosts residencies for artists who seek space for rehearsal, presentations and collaborative art projects. Artists benefit from a space that gives them the opportunity to develop professionally and/or to create and complete projects. Artists give back to the community through outreach, events and programming activities.  

We support projects that focus on empowering the creative voices of all participants; building on their personal experiences and backgrounds to realize a collaborative creative outcome. If you have a project that you would like to pursue at MACC get in touch with us!
