We all know that September is the month when everyone gets their things in order. Let’s face it, not many of us have the focus and discipline to be applying for residencies and funding opportunities in the summer, but September means that fall is upon us, and that’s when we have to buckle down and get to work.
If you’re a creative and are wondering how you could find alternative opportunities for funding as well as residencies that could further your artist career, look no further. Here’s a roundup of the best that the art world has to offer.
