Artists in Residency Application

‍United Arts Collier  & Naples Therapeutic Riding Center

In collaboration with The Naples Therapeutic Riding Center, UAC will offer a residency/space opportunity for ALL kinds of artists (3D, 2D, jewelry, performance, poetry, choreography, composition, culinary) to create new works. Your residency will last for 4 months. The Naples Therapeutic Riding Center is located at 206 Ridge Dr. Naples, FL 34109.

We especially want to offer this opportunity to artists who don’t have adequate space to create or those seeking new inspiration in an energetic setting. As an Artist in Residency, you’ll have access to the spaces provided by The Naples Therapeutic Riding Center to create your work and expand your artistry. Towards the end of your residency, a reception will be held to display and showcase your work or studies to the public.

The Artists in Residency may also have the opportunity to also teach classes/workshops if they desire. Works created do not need to illustrate the environment that they’re in, but rather be
inspired by it.

Bask in the sun on the vast grounds, observe the urban wildlife, and tap into your inner creativity! This is open to UAC Member Artists. To become a member, please email us or learn more here.
